I've been "lurking" on LM_NET for a few weeks and just started to post last
week because of some concerns I had re new principal's directives.  What a
NICE :-) surprise to find you on the listserv!  Re my place in digital
revolution, the more I learn the more I find out that I NEED to learn!  I
think that the Media Center should be the "hub" of information for the
school, regardless of format.
To me that means take any course I can re technology, computers, software
used with online and www searching/retrieval, networking, etc.  Problem is
there is just SO MUCH to learn - nearly impossible while working.  How are
you managing to keep up?
