I mentioned a talk I attended at NJSLA by Stephen Abram a little while ago. In that talk he mentioned that the SLA was going to have an Innovation Lab available to member. Well, this via the SLA mailing list:
Be a lab rat!
The SLA Innovation Laboratory is designed to be a place where you can play, learn, and discover uses for the latest emerging technologies. It's a unique resource exclusively for SLA members to discover, and get comfortable with, new technologies. The Laboratory offers a wide variety of Web 2.0 software learning tools to help you become more business savvy and technologically adept.
The SLA Innovation Lab also provides tools to SLA units (chapters, divisions, committees, councils, caucuses, task forces, etc.) to build and implement useful services for members. The initiative adds deep value to acquiring and retaining SLA membership.
Join us in the Laboratory
SLA has a long tradition of successful education initiatives. Learning opportunities abound, but the SLA Innovation Laboratory differs from traditional continuous learning in that it does not necessarily require a course, conference or event. It is something members -- you -- do for yourself, independently or in small groups. By offering the SLA Innovation Laboratory for members to discover, play, and learn, we have the framework for 24/7 independent learning opportunities. This is an expansion of SLA's learning programs, and is designed for you to invest the time and have fun learning.
So, join us in the laboratory! Enter your SLA userID and password and you're on your way to becoming an Innovation Lab Rat!
