This workshop which is limited to 40 people, is designed for those involved in working with CAP sites or new or emerging community nets.

The people selected to conduct each of these sessions is presently involved at a CAP site or community net. For the Web Design practicum we will be using the computer lab at the Dal Library School. Although all delegates will have an opportunity to participate in this workshop, it will be done in two sections to enable maximum individual attention.
