> Maybe you've heard the buzz about blogs, wikis and RSS, but wonder how
> they can be used in your library. Perhaps you're uncertain if you have
> the technology or time to integrate these communication tools into
> your organization. 
> You can learn all that you need to know about blogging, wikis and RSS
> feeds by enrolling now in one of our popular Keep Up! workshops. We'll
> take a look at examples of good library blogs and wikis, and maybe
> even a few bad examples. We'll discuss what makes them fall into each
> category, and how you can avoid the latter. 
> We'll discuss where RSS fits into the picture with each of these
> technologies, and how you can leverage RSS feeds to keep your patrons
> and staff up to date, even if they don't use a feed reader (and we'll
> talk about those as well). No technical expertise is necessary to
> learn about these technologies, and very little is required to
> implement them.
> This online workshop is ideally suited for frontline staff who may be
> implementing and working with these technologies on a regular basis,
> and for managers who may be responsible for developing policies around
> these tools.
