Welcome/IceBreaker–  Who are you, affiliation (if you want to,) where are you from and do you blog and if so where?/Why T is for Training

Stephanie Zimmerman: How other library trainers are using online tutorials/screencasts/videos etc for virtual learning – spurred by WebJunction Webminar I was in today called 24/7 Librarianship: Reaching Patrons with Digital Tutorials (archive, presentation recording (.swf))

Lori Reed: Reports from the North Carolina Master Trainer Training program and ASTD meeting in Washington DC.

One Stop Library — Breaking the barriers of circulation and reference delivery at your library. Beth’s library has moved away from the individual silo theory of library service delivery and toward the customer service model of going where your customers are waiting for you to show up.

It would be interesting to know if his process would work with libraries.  Additional reading:  Time’s Article from on Creatology
