Countdown to March 2nd

Minds are like parachutes - they only function when they are open (Thomas Dewar)

The coffee cart and donuts will be available from 9am and we kick off at 9.30. If you want to find out who is coming, you can check out the Training Calendar

Anne Hartican is facilitating the agenda session - so it would be good if you could start thinking about what you are interested in sharing, learning or debating. We have a couple of sessions slotted in - Toby McAleer from the ATO will take a session on how he's using mashups and RSS in the OPAC.
Lynette Lewis and Denise McLarty will talk about YPRL's Learning 2.0 program.

We would love to find out more about Second Life - any tour guides out there?
There will be 14 pcs available in the training room for hands on and there's wifi if you want to bring your laptop.

Thomastown Library is close to the station and there's heaps of parking.

Hi, I've also located this after reading Kathryn Greenhill's more recent posts - this is a great online library learning program, looks like it has been developed by Meredith Farkas and some others, called Five Weeks to a Social Library.
The course seems to be full of audiovisual presentations and screencasts. Might be worth adding to the links?

Thanks again to YPRL for the opportunity to be involved in this day - it was terrific!
