Tapped In member Linda A. Maxwell, Education Specialist, Smithsonian
American Art Museum is holding a special asynchronous chat on American
Folk Artist Minnie Evans. To participate in this discussion, you must
join the Minnie Evans Folk Artist Group and enter the discussion that
will be held via the discussion board in the group room. Linda has
placed several online museum resources in the group room. To join a
group in Tapped In, see this month's Technology Tips.
 Tapped In Technology Tip
Joining a Group
Only Tapped In members can join a group and only group members can enter
a group room. Many of the events that are scheduled on the calendar are
supported by group resource rooms which contain files, links and a
discussion board to facilitate communication among group members. To
join a group in Tapped In, log in and go to the SEARCH tab in the top
right of the screen. Click on the GROUPS tab and enter the group name or
topic you are looking for. When you press the FIND IT button you will
get a list of matches. Go to the group identity page (click on the name
of the group next to the green i icon). At the top of the group identity
page will be a place to join or request to join the group. Once you
submit this information you will receive email confirmation of your
group membership. When membership is confirmed (if the group is public,
this confirmation is automatic) the group name will be added to the
Favorite Places menu and you will have direct access to the group room.
