Two new tutorials have been added to the ANimated Tutorial Sharing (ANTS) Project - http://www.brandonu.ca/library/coppul/ - which contains Open Source Tutorials for other libraries to access, modify and use.
The new tutorials are:
* Modern Language Association (EBSCOhost) Tutorial - added June 2007.
* CINAHL (EBSCOhost) Tutorial - added August 2007.
This brings the total number of tutorials in ANTS to 12.
In other news, ANTS has been gaining international attention. It has been bookmarked in several social bookmarking sites and mentioned in documents and presentations from Finland and Italy, and a blog from France. Two international volunteers have agreed to contribute tutorials to the ANTS project. They are Virginia Bender, West Virginia University, who volunteered to do two Medline tutorials, and Ann Tenglund, St. Bonaventure University, NY, who volunteered to do an English version of the tutorial for the Academic Search Premier database.
Carmen Kazakoff Lane, Brandon University, did a presentation on ANTS at the ACRL Conference held March 29 - April 1, 2007 in Baltimore. Her peer-reviewed contributed paper "Providing Innovative Services to 'Our Users' in the World of Web 2.0: The ANTS Initiative." was published in the Conference Proceedings.
