Web 2.0 training – wikis

Well, with Lhan unavailable for a couple of weeks, it’s up to Paul and I to deliver the four training sessions dealing with wikis. The first week went well, with all the participants learning how to edit a wiki page and how to create a page. I’m sure this week will be as successful. I hope everyone posts to their blog with what they’ve learnt, otherwise they won’t be eligible for any of the prizes that are on offer!

ALA Annual Conference

The 2010 American Library Association Conference was held last week in Washington, DC. Here are some links to various sessions and presentations:

The ALA Annual Conference is organised quite differently to Australian library conferences (apart from being much, much bigger – there were 26,201 attendees at this year’s conference!) There isn’t a single programme which all the sessions are part of. Rather, each Division of ALA organises their own programme. This means there are dozens of sessions all running at the same time at several different venues. It can be hard trying to decide which session to go to.
