Versions of the following have appeared online regularly, since 1992, as a feature of the FYI France enewsletter, ISSN 1071-5916, which is distributed for free via email every month except August. Enewsletter subscriptions may be obtained via email request to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The list contains a selection only: additional online digital information resources develop in France every week, on the Internet -- one can be sure only that there are more, not fewer, than what follows online in France now.
Here this file is one of a number made available -- hopefully attractively, all in one place, and relevant to libraries and online digital information work in France and Europe -- as part of FYI France (sm)(tm), an online service to which anyone can subscribe by postal mailing a check for US $45, payable to Jack Kessler, to PO Box 460668, San Francisco, California, USA 94146 (site licenses also are available): please write your email address on the front of your check. Please email suggestions for improvements to me at email@example.com
I have offered Internet Training and Consulting services myself for a number of years, primarily to people and institutions with an interest in France, but also to others. Much -- in some cases all -- of the training which I have offered has been conducted entirely online, via email. I can be contacted about this sort of work via email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Many others offer similar services now, however. I would be happy to list anyone who does so here, if their work concerns France or at least general European online digital information access. FYI France will provide here -- as is done for other FYI France entries -- at least contact information and some sort of minimal description of the service being offered.
The Internet is a big place, with plenty of room now for great numbers of people offering a similar service. This is sort of like the artificial war being conducted now by online service providers and Web browser producers: "AOL versus Compuserve", "Netscape versus Internet Explorer", and so on. As AOL's Steve Case has been heard to observe, with Internet growth rates like those currently under way, there is more than enough room for all the current players, and then some: providers should be out there seeking and helping new users, rather than fighting over the relative few who already have been landed.
This opportunity is accompanied, in the case of Internet Training and Consulting services, by a quickly growing need as well: the Internet needs them at least as much as those who offer them need the Internet.
So anyone who would like to find themselves listed here, as a provider of Internet Training and Consulting services related to France and / or Europe, is encouraged to contact me via email to email@example.com and provide me with listing detail.
Note: As this page develops, I may add sample teaching materials and other training information, oriented specifically toward teaching people how to use online digital information in France and in French. This will depend on the demand for same. For example:
"vous propose :
L'URFIST de Paris, dans le cadre d'un programme proposé par la DISTNB, s'attache à soutenir les actions de formation documentaire des étudiants, assurées par des bibliothécaires ou des enseignants universitaires, par un travail d'inventaire, de collecte et de réalisation de documents pédagogiques.
Le GREMI fonctionne depuis plusieurs années autour d'un travail d'évaluation des résultats d'enseignements documentaires assurés pour les étudiants de premier cycle à l'Université de Paris 8. Cette recherche, menée par Alain Coulon, a montré une correlation très intéressante entre l'obtention de cette UV (Unité de Valeur) et le taux de réussite dans l'ensemble du parcours universitaire.Elle a donné lieu à diverses publications.
Le GREMI a élargi ses thèmes d'étude et se définit actuellement comme un espace de réflexion sur le sens et les modalités des enseignements documentaires, sur la place des méthodes et outils informationnels dans le travail intellectuel, sur la fonction sociale et culturelle de la maîtrise des systèmes documentaires.
