Playful Teamwork --- Collaborative Opportunity

Using web 2.0 concepts or tools, participants are challenged to work together to create something of value for library staff or customers. Here are several examples of possible projects for an agency or team:

  • The law library might use a wiki format to create an online resource on privacy and the Internet.
  • The Reader’s Advisory group might use a social network like Ning to connect readers and facilitate book discussions and merchandise library materials.

To complete the challenge, participants can use either their current work groups, teams or form new ones. Already established groups and teams are encouraged to work together. Participants should discuss and obtain their supervisor's approval before participating.

On or before May 4, participants will submit their projects for review to a panel of judges. Using the Project Review Process, the panel of judges will select one project to be presented at the May 2009 LCDT meeting. All projects submitted will be showcased with a display board at the May 2009 LCDT.

Each project will be required to demonstrate the following:
1. Support the library's mission and / or strategic plan
2. Add value for either internal and / or external customers
3. Collaboration
4. Creative or innovative approach
5. Knowledge of web 2.0 tools

To be considered for review, each group needs to submit the following:
1. Playful Teamwork ProjectForm
2. Display board showcasing their project
3. URL of their project, if appropriate
