There are many Web 2.0 elements with which I am familiar, but do not exploit enough, and many that are new, and with the course being online, free and requiring weekly tasks done in my own time, it’s ideal. Peers supporting peers. Librarians enhancing the skills and information-sharing for and with other Librarians. Now THIS is what I signed up my soul to the information world for :D
