The preparations are underway and the countdown has begun ... 48 hours until vacation and a long overdue one at that. In the meantime, I'm finalizing plans for August 3rd, when both Michael Stephens and Michael Casey will joining myself and our library's staff for PLCMC's second Technology Summit. I can't wait!
This year's summit is focused on -- what else -- Library 2.0 and along with this focus I will also be using this event to kick off an exciting new program for staff called Learning 2.0.
The L2 project has gobbled up nearly every available moment of my free time since the beginning of June. In fact, so much so that my husband has threatened to quarantine my laptop on more than one occasion. Anyway, the good news is that with a vacation looming I have absolutely no plans to cart along a 4.5 lb appendage and actually hope to devour several titles that have been parked on my must read list for far too long. :)
So what is Learning 2.0 you ask? Well check back August 3rd for the official unveiling. In the meantime, you can view the site for a brief description of the program with more details being added soon.
And for PLCMC staff who may be reading this, be sure to get yourself signed up to attend the Summit (see the the training calendar on the staff intranet) for this is one afternoon you'll not want to miss!!
PS: If you didn't catch the announcement earlier this week on the ALA TechSource blog, the invitation to neighboring libraries can be found here. If you're in the Charlotte area, I hope you can join us.
