Tech skills projects for librarianship
September 28, 2011 5:02 PM Subscribe
I'm a librarian-in-training wanting to improve my tech skills (which are pretty non-existent at the moment) and I figure the best way to do that is to have some projects to work on, but I'm having trouble coming up with any ideas.

So I'm looking for projects library people are working on (or things that they think should be worked on), to give me a feel for what's going on and what's possible, and to maybe give me some new ideas. Vaguely, I'm interested in: LAMP stuff, open source, using things like the twitter/ google maps APIs. But my interests are quite broad ranging so any links to or information about projects relating to technology and libraries would be useful.
