The SirsiDynix discussion The 2.0 Meme – Web 2.0, Library 2.0, Librarian 2.0 is now available. I was really blown away by Stephen Abram, Michael Casey and John Blyberg. I was honored to join these fellowings and chat around a virtual rountable about 2.0 discussions. The chat about mash ups and user created content really got me thinking. Abram asked us to give a quick overview of our L2 thinking to start. I made some brief notes to prepare, which included this: The principles of Library 2.0 seeks to break down barriers: barriers librarians have placed on services, barriers of […]
Organizational charts worked in an older economy where plans could be fully understood from atop steep management pyramids and detailed work orders could be handed down from on high. Today, the org chart is hyperlinked, not hierarchical. Respect for hands-on knowledge wins over respect for abstract authority.

Let me know what you think and as always add your own in the comments below. Let’s create a really terrific guide for those who are just discovering this fascinating and useful study of the next generation of online software. The list and his points are incredible and can be most useful for guiding libraries into […]
(David said I could call the post that!) http://www.davidleeking.com/ Take a look at David King’s snazzy new blog, complete with categories and such! WooHoo! My favoriter category right now is the postings devoted to the Experience Economy.

I just had to say “You Rock” to him about his take on library web sites.
Great posts about the L2 discussion from two of my all time favorite voices of the biblioblogosphere: http://scanblog.blogspot.com/2006/02/what-stephen-said.html http://stephenslighthouse.sirsi.com/archives/2006/02/the_library_20_1.html 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 […]

Via e-mail today: I envision the library as a focal social and information center that plays a strong role within the daily lives of individuals. We are not there yet, but if enough people believe in themselves, libraries, and society — i think we can get there.
Just a link for now: http://www.yalibrarian.com/2006/02/library-20-services-to-teens-listing.html Lots of cool stuff to explore and good ground for imagining what your library could do! Take a look.
Thanks to everyone who commented on the Reinvention post, sent e-mails and posted flickr pictures tagged just so! — it really touched me. I appreciate your thoughtfulness! I have 2.5 more days at work at SJCPL and then I’m off to the next chapter.
