Scottish Government Library. What is 10 Things?

Scottish Government Library

10 Things is an online self-directed course developed by the Scottish Government Library. The aim is for you to spend a little time each week developing your social media and information searching skills. Each week we’ll post details about one or more of the tools from our 10 Things course and encourage you to try them out and reflect on them. Our aim is to present a realistic challenge that you can fit it into your schedule. 10 Things is based on the original 23 Things course which ran at the Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County in the USA in 2006. When does it start? How can I join? When the course starts you’ll receive an email welcoming you to the course and the first ‘thing’.
