International Public Access Computing Event for Library Staff

WebJunction has announced an online collaboration event in conjunction with their "Public Access Computing Around the World" focus in May. The three day event includes a new forum on All Aboard plus guest moderators Nancy Bolt of Colorado State Library and the American Bulgarian Library Exchange Project, and Pilar Pacheco, Training Area Coordinator, BiblioRedes Project in Chile.

The event will take place on May 10, 11, & 12. Betha Gutsche, WebJunction Community Associate, notes that the goals of this event are to:
  • Open the door to the international library world
  • Learn some practical ideas from other countries
  • Give everyone a better appreciation for the challenges and successes of public access computing

  • While anyone may read the forum posts, you do need to register to participate in the discussion.

    As the BiblioRedes project says, “Abre Tu Mundo” –Open Your World!
