SLA San Andreas blog

SLA San Andreas changed from a website to a blog. It has a RSS feed as well. Check it out. It's nice to see chapters and associations here in California discovering what technologies work best for conveying information.

Helene Blowers, Technology Director for the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County shares insights and best practices around the creation of Learning 2.0, an online self-discovery program designed to encourage staff to explore new technologies (blogs, wikis, podcasts etc.) and reward them for "play."Join us for this informative session and then think about adding another resolution to your personal New Year's list... cause it's true, life (as well as new technology) does come at you fast!"
