Today I helped out with training on discussion board software with dozens of Illinois libraries at the Burpee Museum of Natural History. Here’s how they describe the project:
Welcome to The Jane Collaborative Forums, sponsored by the Burpee Museum of Natural History in Rockford, Illinois in partnership with sixty-one small urban and rural public libraries throughout Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.
If you’ve reached this page, you have been invited to join the Jane Collaborative Forums, a unique community space for librarians and museum staff to interact with each other, learn about the Jane exhibitions, and increase interest in and traffic to the museum and participating libraries.
You will be able to pose questions, start discussions, and interact with each other as we plan and execute activities surrounding the Jane exhibition and special library programs.
