Thing #15-Web 2.0, library 2.0, and the future of libraries
Library 2.0 is about responding to the way things are today. It is about taking the technology we have coming at us and using it to the best of our abilities. Students today process and use information differently from the more conventional paper and pencil way. So, libraries should be prepared to serve their patrons in a way that is best for the patron. library 2.0 is also about making library services available to the patron everywhere and not just physically in the library. Here's the catch, we must do all this while still incorporating our special librarian expertise because if not, we could find software/computer engineers trying to do our job. Yikes!
