Key: Additions Deletions
Over the years, libraries have witnessed a significant growth in their number of online resources; matched with an increasing demand for 24/7 information literacy. At the same time new software - that allows librarians to capture Search Screens and insert audio and/or text - means that librarians can quickly create highly professional Animated Tutorials.
Recognizing that creating and updating Tutorials for each online resource is a daunting task for any library to undertake on its own, librarians in COPPUL got together to find a way to share in their development. This project is an outgrowth of that initiative and our goal is to create a critical mass of Open Source Tutorials for online resources used by libraries everywhere.
As the ANTS infrastructure is very dynamic and capable of evolving we also have listened to requests from various librarians and opened the project to other types of library tutorials so it can serve as a central repository for all types of library tutorials - such as Information Literacy ones. We welcome all new content but do ask that you indicate what type of tutorial you are working on the Wiki list so others will know of your activity.
As of September 2006, participation in the project was opened to librarians outside of COPPUL and we welcome all participation as we view it as essential to the project's success. So please join us in an initiative that we hope will greatly benefit library users everywhere!
