This article has a lot of interesting points and it links to the learning tool (amd more):
Public Library Geeks Take Web 2.0 to the Stacks by Beverly Hanly Wired 03.29.07
..."Recognizing that librarians need to know how to participate in the new media mix if libraries are to remain relevant, Blowers challenged her 550 staffers to become more web savvy. Using free web tools, she designed the program and gave staff members three months to do 23 things.
"They created blogs and podcasts, tried out Flickr, set up RSS feeds, learned about wikis, uploaded video to YouTube, played with image generators and Rollyo, and explored Technorati, tagging and folksonomies."
