Alane writes:

Stephen Abram has written a long post, The Library 2.0 ‘Bandwagon’, in which he suggests in what concrete ways Lib2.0 would be different from Lib1.0. If you’re feeling woolly-headed about Lib2.0, read Stephen’s take on it. What he said.
“The users are moving into the control position. Libraries are no longer able to drive the good bus ‘library’ alone.”

I am pretty sure that when libraries’ systems and services are more transparent and accessible to users, and so may be changed and added to by users, many wonderful things will flower.
