    • Supporting traditional services
      • Many Third Sector information professionals are incorporating 2.0 processes into their workflow – e.g. picking up news through RSS / atom feeds
      ( Access The College of Optometrists Library pages here )
    • Creating 2.0 Services
      • Inner Temple Library offers a current awareness blog (inc. feeds), twitter (inc. feed), widget , Facebook page , flickr (inc. feed) and a wiki of court transcripts (inc. feed)
    • Social Networking
      • Local causes like this can use social networks to reach supporters outwith their geographic area.
    • Social Networking Facilities
      • The research jury is still out on the cost-benefit ratio of building your own gated community, but potential advantages include providing added value to members, increased web-traffic and brand loyalty. ( cf Communities )
    • Raising Awareness
      • Josie Crimp uses her LiveJournal blog to document her experience at the NPH Children’s Home in Mexico, which raises awareness of the charity and VSO generally.
    • Many of the most exciting things are happening outside the library :
    • Campaigning & Comms Rule!
      • Information Professionals need to network and sell our skills:
      • “ Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the ones
      • that we seek.”
      • ~ Barack Obama
      • February 2008
