On Small Libraries and Library 2.0

Marie Palmer, at a new-to-me blog called “Library Stuff…” writes this week about reading Casey & Savastinuk’s article in LJ , and ponders how smaller libraries can get involved:

A lot of libraries have always aimed to be “Library 2.0?. What’s new now is the abundance of technologies that help libraries further this aim. I work with a lot of small public libraries and though they may wish to keep up with these technologies, they very often don’t have the funding or resources to do so. They’re also usually far from highly populated centres that tend to attract techno-savvy librarians.
One way smaller libraries (and larger) can subscribe to the Library 2.0 bandwagon is to solicit help from the surrounding community: Plan a Technology Summit at Your Library.

Again: Plan a Technology Summit at Your Library

What a great idea! Think of the posibilities of getting your users toghether and talking about Web 2.0 and Library 2.0. It also might be a great way to launch a Learning 2.0 initiative for library staff and users!
