This presentation outlines the development and research methodology of the CAVAL 2009 Visiting Scholar Research Project, Measuring the Value and Effect of Learning 2.0 Programs in Libraries. Created to include all staff in a learning activity and offered to all via a Creative Commons license, some LIS practitioners have lauded Learning 2.0 programs as a successful way to engage staff. Replicated more than 500 times across the globe in various types of libraries and over 30 times in Australia alone, this project explores the true impact of the program on Australian libraries
