23 Things on a Stick / Web 2.0

23 Things – Library 2.0 (aka Thing 2)

Here’s my second task on the 23 Things on a Stick. I’ve been learning about library 2.0 today through a video, article and blog.

I enjoyed the video from the guy from SLA – although I wasn’t thrilled to use Firefox to view it. It’s been a while since I worked at a library so it’s hard to me to speak as an insider – but simple as it is if I were a librarian today (and I always worked at small special libraries) I’d be all over email lists and RSS feeds to push update to patrons on the topics that I knew were following.

I also enjoyed Blyberg’s 11 reasons why Library 2.0 exists. He’s right on the need to re-think management to effectively use Web 2.0 tools. I think flattening out the organization chart with the 2.0 tools is a good thing – but then I work alone so that’s probably a testament to how I handle working with others right there.
