Library 2.0 posts

I have to admit – maybe I’m a keener – but I read all 5 of the discussions. It was just interesting to read about the how/why of Library 2.0.

My 2 favourites were Wendy Schultz and Michael Stephens. I really enjoyed Michael Stephens’ lists of traits needed for library 2.0. He seems to understand the future of libraries and how we, as employees of the library, must embrace these changes in order to keep current. He wasn’t advocating that technology had to be sexy or that we had to have all the latest gadgets and gizmos but that we needed to understand how what’s out there can help our patrons (or customers) deal with information. We must use these tools to enhance our services and be part of the technology community (otherwise we risk being left behind). This article really spoke to me and drove the 25 things exercise home.
