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 place and time and barriers inherent in what we do. In this user-centered paradigm, libraries can get information/entertainment/knowledge into the hands of our users wherever they are by whatever means works best, including Web 2.0 tools.
