AIRS Networker

The AIRS Networker is a Web 2.0 application that allows AIRS members to work together in all manner of online communities and collaborations. It is a professional networking application and you are free to harness its power in any way that helps yourself and your organization. At its core is a web-based mailing list (called the AIRS Networker Open Forum) that operates in basically the same way as the old AIRS I&R Networker. But although it has similar core functionality, overall the new Networker has a multiplicity of advantages over the previous system, including the ability to create and expand searchable resource libraries, public and private discussion groups, blogs, searchable directories and private online communities.
