Are you considering setting up web 2.0 tools and services for your library for the next academic year?   Do you want to launch a Facebook page, Twitter account or blog, or start using delicious or LibraryThing, but need some guidance on how to start?  Maybe you completed 23 Things and want some help on how to make use of what you learnt in your library?   Then the 23 Things Summer Camp is for you!

Over three hour-long sessions, you will be guided through all you need to get web 2.0ed up and be ready to go for Michaelmas Term.  

Session 1 will focus on strategy – why use web 2.0? What is your aim? Which tools will you use? How will you maintain your web 2.0 presence and link it to everything else that you do? What are the risks and how should you deal with them? 

Session 2 will cover set-up – plenty of hands-on time to get your chosen tools and sites up and running with expert support available.   

Session 3 will look at synchronisation – how to make it all work together efficiently so that it will save you time, reach the widest audience, and connect with your existing website and other publicity tools.

You can attend all the sessions or just pick the ones you need help with. Each session will run twice, and can be attended out of order, although following the course through will give you the best overview.   Please note that you will need to do some preparatory and follow-up work for each session to get the best out of the programme.

Spend some time at the 23 Things Summer Camp and you too could have a shiny new web 2.0 library service in time for Michaelmas Term!  

All sessions will be held in the Abbot’s Kitchen Training Room, RSL
