You can read about the time commitment and requirements over at the 5 Weeks site. And having been a participant in ALA BootCamp project earlier this year, this offering just really excites me. Of course, I won't be throwing my name into the participant pot, but if you're thinking that this sounds even a little bit exciting, then I highly encourage you to apply.
Five Weeks to a Social Library will take place between February 12 and March 17, 2007 and will be limited to forty participants. However, course content will be freely viewable to interested parties and all live Webcasts will be archived for later viewing.
We are currently accepting applications for participants in the course. The application process is designed to ensure that the course will benefit those librarians who have the most to gain from learning about social software and who would not otherwise have access to conferences or continuing education. If you are interested in learning how to use and implement social software tools at your library, please consider applying for the course.
PS: I'm also thrilled that Kelly Czarnecki and Matt Gullet from PLCMC will also be presenting. Both Kelly and Matt are doing some fabulous stuff here that is definitely worth sharing.
