Ironically, I'll be writing more in the near future about the various things I am working on that have kept me from blogging here, but one of those things is a commitment to an online course for ALA about Library 2.0 using Library 2.0 tools. My co-presenter for the course, Michael Stephens, has already posted about it over on the ALA TechSource Blog so you can read more about it there, but now we're moving forward with the actual development of the course, which will start in May.
The first order of business is creating a reading list, so naturally we're starting to pull together a variety of posts from around the internet (blog posts, emails, mailing list messages, etc.). Therefore, if you have an original piece you have written or want to write about Library 2.0 that you would like to submit for consideration, please contact either one of us (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com) or leave a comment on one of our sites. I'm stressing the word "original" in the previous sentence because we're more interested in moving the discussion forward, rather than just recycling straight reposts, "me, too," or "what he said" pointers. Linking to someone else is fine, but we're hoping to hear your own thoughts on the subject. And of course, we reserve the right to edit them down if need be, but we'll clear any changes with you.
We'd especially love to hear from those of you who feel that you haven't been heard on this issue, those of you who believe your thoughts have been misrepresented or misconstrued elsewhere, and anyone else that feels strongly about this topic. We'll be inclusive of the whole discussion, which is why we're putting out this call. Here's your chance to join in!
