               Senior Library Technical Assistant

In the library environment, there are no independent workers.
Everyone's job has an impact on someone and usually many persons.
For this reason, most of us are now involved in the training of
co-workers as well as keeping ourselves up-to-date.  We are each
responsible for learning new skills both in the library world and in the
world of computers and the Internet.  The following list of training URLs
covers a wide scope of computer software.  Most deal with the Internet
and the Wold Wide Web, but other software products are covered as
well.  Many of these sites are commercial sites which may have charges
attached, and these I have tried to indicate with the word commercial set
off with *'s.  If I miss some, remember the following designations:
            .edu/ = educational site;
            .gov/ = government site;
            .com/ = commercial site;
            .org/ = organization site.
Good luck and happy training.

Matches" where we take you through a step by step example of how to
write your first Java program.
Twenty One Matches is a short example of a Java "applet". You can take
a copy of this code to modify.  This example program plays a very simple
game against the user. Starting with twenty one match sticks, the user
