Honestly it seems like ages since Michael Stephens and Michael Casey joined our staff for our Technology Summit where the program was launched. And had I know then what I know now, I would spent some time developing some type of FAQ guide to help answer the hundreds of emails I've responded over the past year about the logistics, etc. of how to setup and run the program.
After over 200 inquiries from other libraries & non-profits -- I've got a folder in Outlook that I saved them in. In makes it easy to cut and paste responses to previous inquiries, so I guess that's my personal faq guide :) -- Learning 2.0 seems to have circumvented the globe. They're doing it in Norway, in Denmark, in Germany and all over Australia. (see Minerva Shelved's google map)
Anyway, it's been a fantastic year and the grassroots success of this program has surpassed my wildest dreams. Funny, when I set out to design and develop the program for PLCMC staff, my initial goal was to reach 125 employees. Never did I imagine that in less than a year later, the program would have been adapted or duplicated by nearly 125 different libraries. :)
So... Thanks all, for not only seeing the potential that these tools have to bring individuals and communities together, but for actually seizing the opportunity. It's been amazing to see the library community connecting all over the globe this past year on a similar mission. And I am truly honored to work in a profession that is so generous, collaborative and sharing.
