Have you been looking for an opportunity to learn more about a wide variety of Google Tools, but thought that with all that Google has to offer it would take way too much time?

Well wait no more, hop on board the Google train! Come to the Office of Information Technology's Pecha Chuka:Google @ UMN.

In this Pechu Chuka 10 presenters will each get 20 slides at 20 seconds per slide to talk about a wide variety of Google Tools. Topics covered will include Google Books, Google Reader, the UMN Google Apps, Google Wave and more.

I'll be presenting with Information Literacy Librarian Kate Peterson on Using Google for Research.

It will be a fast-paced introduction to a wide variety of interesting tools!

The event is being held in Coffman Union in the Mississippi Room on this Wednesday (December 2, 2009) from 2:00-4:00.

The event will also be broadcast over UM Connect. Those who attend in person will be able to participate in a post-pechu chuka question and answer discussion with presenters.
