Have staff members run in the other direction any time you mention anything related to the social web? Hear how one library tricked staff into happily using blogs, Goodreads, Delicious, Flickr, and more. Learn how to get your staff started using social web tools as our speakers share tips, tricks, and just plain sneaky tactics to get staff to use (and enjoy!) these tools to create and contribute content. And if you have already done a Learning 2.0 project, given out your prizes, and created an appetite for learning, now what? Reed explores ideas to continue informal learning and leverage the momentum built by successful Learning 2.0 projects. Technology is here today, and library staff must stay current to stay relevant.
