Building upon a successful state-based program, the Illinois State Library will develop a continuing education initiative to build technology and leadership skills among that state's librarians. This highly replicable model, consisting of team- and project-based learning, will build a sustainable technology immersion program combining intermittent face-to-face meetings and online sessions over nine months. Two cohorts of participants will explore new forms of participatory Web 2.0 technology, hone their skills, and then use those newly acquired skills to address the needs of their users.
