In a previous post I mentioned that the MLA (medical library association) 2008 meeting was covered by official conference bloggers and that these advanced medical-library-bloggers applied all the tools that we learned during our Spoetnik course.
I gave the name of 3 MLA-bloggers, just the ones that I already knew. When adding the other 7 to my feed I found out that at least 2 of these bloggers were newbies like us (Spoetniks) as well. On their blogs they make mention of their experiences with a web 2.0 MLA course. It seems that these web 2.0 courses are in great demand, especially (?) among librarians.
Here are the names of the 2 newbie-bloggers.
Leigh Mihlrad – Leigh’s Little Corner of the Web
Bryan Nugent – The Universe of Medical Librarianship
I found it interesting to read their experiences with a spoetnik-like web 2.0 course. The programs diverge in details (i.e. they cover mashups as well), but overall the experiences are very similar.
