AbstractThis is the presentation of the poster "Bibliotecari con Moodle, su Moodle, per Moodle" shown at Moodlemoot Italia 2008, forth edition of the users of Moodle's annual meeting held at the University of Padua in May 9-10, 2008. Nowadays, one of the fundamental missions of a university digital library is to cooperate and integrate with e-learning: academic digital libraries are asked to support the new ways and models of contemporary didactics through the use of training and educational materials which have been deposited in online platforms. In this way, digital libraries enhance and enrich their functionalities with the creation of new services which are personalized and structured in accordance with the users. CAB- Centro di Ateneo per le Biblioteche of the University of Padua- decided to accept this challenge and use the open source platform Moodle, supported by "Servizio di Supporto alla Didattica" of Centro di Calcolo di Ateneo, in order to create a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) for training and updating activities addressed to librarians "on the road". Although this educational project for librarians is still a work in progress, its main aim is the education and development of future information specialists who will be able to cope with the emerging challenges raised by the cutting edge technological developments in the field of library and information science. The poster sheds light on the purposes, the future developments and the further applications of this project. The course has been divided into four sections so far: · Community tools in e-learning environments · Informative resources and searching tools on the net · Services: organization, monitoring and evaluation · Intellectual outputs' treatment and dissemination In the context of e-learning, Learning Objects (LO) play an essential role. Learning objects are "modular" didactic resources which constitute a complete topic and which can be used and reused a lot of times. Librarian are invited to take advantage of these new tools for their training and education. Selected by Centro di Ateneo per le Biblioteche (CAB), the learning objects are the defining elements of this course for librarians. In the platform, there are other kinds of educational material as well. The materials deals with a number of "cool" subjects: digital libraries, metadata, Library 2.0, Web 2.0 and copyright. In this virtual environment, it is worthwhile to take into account the issue of describing and presenting Virtual Learning Environment's resources through a standard schema of metadata. Virtual Learning Environment's resources should be classified through metadata and integrate with the informative resources of a university library in order to make them more visible and accessible and to facilitate their identification and reusability. The project for the creation of the learning objects, directed by Formez, was funded by Dipartimento della Funzione Pubblica. Created in compliance with the international standard SCORM (Shareable Courseware Object Reference Model), the learning objects regarding Library and Information Science (LIS) are distributed from the perspective of a collaborative and shareable reusability of the resources, one of the milestones of the Web 2.0.
