Library 2.0

Library 2.0 is a nice buzzword, but what does it mean? Right now “Library 2.0” seems to be as well defined a term as “information society. Current thinking about Library 2.0 seems to center around library information technologies.

But it’s more technology centered than people centered. New technologies are pointless if they’re not used. Michael (and others) get it, Library 2.0 is people! (insert Soylent Green joke here) Library 2.0 is an extension of the “library as place” idea and needs to focus on ” the library in the life of the user”.
