  • 5. Web 2.o <ul><li>Web 2.0 is based on the idea that the Web is more than a place to find information from “official” sources. </li></ul><ul><li>Web 2.0 is built on the concept of individuals being able to create their own content, share that content with others, and connect with people who share their interests. </li></ul>
  • 6. Web 2.0 is on the move… <ul><li>Web 2.0 is based on a “Web-based platform” instead of a desktop-based platform. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Web-based=remote, flexible, on-the-go, community </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Desktop=stationary, inflexible, yours alone </li></ul></ul>
  • 7. Read-Write Web <ul><li>The fact that users can not only read online information, but create (or write) it, too, is the reason why Web 2.0 is sometimes called the Read-Write Web. </li></ul>
  • 8. Libraries + Web 2.0 = Fabulous Services & Content <ul><li>Web 2.0 is perfect for libraries, librarians and our patrons, alike! </li></ul><ul><li>Our library patrons, like us, work, study, and get news and entertainment from many different locations (computers). </li></ul>
