Library 2.0 - links & resources

What do Web 2.0 and Library 2.0 actually mean? We've been working in this "2.0" environment for several years now. Now that we know what some of the applications are let's take a look at how libraries are integrating them into their service delivery. This talk will discuss ways that libraries have been using new technologies, and also some old tech, to reach and interact with patrons in new ways. We'll also discuss the privacy issues that are emerging around the use of social software. It's all about ideas, examples, and links, links, links.
