Bonjour, Int-Law! FYI that the successful online course for on how to use Web 2.0 tools in law libraries is back! And it's still free...:-): http://bit.ly/10IiHx I participated last year and had a blast learning about wikis, blogs, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Second Life, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Ning, etc. Our small groups chatted online every week at times convenient for every participant. I use what I learned in the course every day. And many of the participants are very active on the various social networks. They're great e-colleagues! As y'all may recall, one of my goals was to find foreign and international legal research uses for these Web 2.0 tools. Well, y'all can undertake the same quest! :-) CS-SIS Web 2.0 Challenge 2009 A Free, Online Course to Introduce Law Librarians to Web 2.0 Technologies August 3-September 6, 2009 http://lawlibraries.ning.com/profiles/blogs/announcing-the-web-20 (organizers anticipate opening enrollment on June 22, 2009) The practice wiki created for the 2008 AALL CIS-SIS Web 2.0 Challenge (American Association of Law Libraries Computing Services Special Interest Section at http://cssis.org/) has great infos in it: http://web20-challenge.pbworks.com/ Participant wrote entries of varying lengths on some of the topics below (so y'all can see the breadth of what you can learn via this course, and have access to later): IM, Knol, the iPod for law libraries, Xobni, institutional repositories, RFID, Cuil, Screen2, Zotero, the Semantic web, custom search engines, Adobe Captivate, library toolbars, RSS feeds for law firms, blogs for law library users, PMOG, Go To My PC, D-Space, clickers for law libraries, Drupal, Skype, LinkedIn for librarians, smart phones, data mashups, cell phones and text messaging, Pulse "smartpen" from Livescribe, Pipl, waterproofing, LibraryThing: social networking for cataloging, Screencast, iTunes U, e-book readers, Smilebox, LibX Browser Plugin for Library Resources, Google Docs, social networking for attorneys, etc. Ciao, Lyo. ---------------------- Lyonette Louis-Jacques Foreign and International Law Librarian and Lecturer in Law D'Angelo Law Library University of Chicago Law School 1121 East 60th Street Chicago, Illinois 60637 Phone: 773-702-9612 Fax: 773-702-2889 [log in to unmask] http://www.lib.uchicago.edu/~llou/ http://www.lib.uchicago.edu/e/law/ ******************************************************************* Int-Law - International Law Librarians List: Post messages to [log in to unmask] To unsubscribe send a message with unsubscribe int-law as the text of the message to [log in to unmask] An archive of postings are located at http://listserver.ciesin.columbia.edu/int-law.html. **DISCLAIMER: The opinions expressed on this list are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of CIESIN, its staff, or CIESIN's sponsors.
