Successful! The CMCIG Workshop

Dynamic CMCs: Tools to Improve Service, was another successful endeavor planned by CMCIG chair Greg Martin, and deftly assisted by this year's workshop hostess Frances Yates, Instructional Materials Center Librarian at Miami University's King Library.

The CMCIG blog was discussed during the business meeting. I would like to reiterate the invitation extended for workshop participants to post their comments about the workshop, it's varied sessions, and to continue the dialogues begun throughout the day.

If you are interested:

If you have questions regarding how to use or post with blogger, feel free to contact Greg or Diane, we will be glad to help you get started. As always, comments are open to anyone who would like to add to the posted discussions.
