|AM07||START Conference Manager|
Despite the unquestioned need for librarians of all stripes to update their skills during their careers, many librarians do not have access to formal training venues such as conferences, continuing-education programs, and even some high-priced, high-bandwidth Internet-based learning. Rural librarians (both public and academic), community-college librarians, and K-12 school librarians are commonly underserved. To see how best Internet-based learning could serve this population, the authors combined commonly-available free and open-source technologies into "Five Weeks to a Social Library" (<http://www.sociallibraries.com/course/>) an Internet-based workshop on social software specifically targeted at underserved professionals.
