Programapedia Training

Programapedia LogoSynergistic is defined as "simultaneous action of separate things that have a greater total effect than the sum of their individual effect." In other words, two (or more) is better than one. And planning for library programming is no different - the more ideas, the more experiences, the more feedback, the more people involved in the decision making process, the better the end result. Programapedia is a tool that offers that kind of collaborative experience when planning a library program.

Programapedia is a wiki resource (like Wikipedia) that connects its users with a dynamic collection of program and presenter profiles that offer details about programming events and presentations. These profiles provide information including contact information, program description, costs, feedback and ratings, and presentation materials such as flyers and handouts. Programapedia offers librarians a unique opportunity – the chance to share programming information on a statewide level, providing a more diverse base of ideas and presenter pool than would otherwise be available.
