Transcript

  • 1. a Useful Online Software: Learn how to make Web 2.0 work for your library! New Hampshire Library Association Spring Conference May 18, 2007
  • 2. Web 2.0
    • Web 2.0 is based on the idea that the Web is more than a place to find information from “official” sources.
    • 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.
  • 3. Web As Productivity Tool
  • 4. Web-based Software However, now many similar programs reside completely online! In the past, software resided solely on your computer. (And most software still does!)
  • 5. Desktop-based Software All of your programs and information is stored at your computer. No Web access needed.
  • 6. Web-based Software Your software and data are stored online and accessed via the Web.
  • 7. Web = Computing Platform
    • Web 1.0:
      • Your computer’s hardware was the sole computing platform.
    • Web 2.0:
      • The Web has become a computing platform.
    Web Spreadsheets Blogs Email Word Processing
  • 8. Web-based Software
    • Word Processors that are compatible with MS Word and Open Office.
    • File Storage that works like your Windows Explorer.
    • Spreadsheets that do everything MS Excel does.
    • Photo editing that is much easier to use than Photoshop!
    • Databases that can be very powerful.
  • 9. Software or Website?
    • In many cases…
    • Both!
  • 10. Web-based Software Webware
  • 11. Synonyms (at least for this presentation…)
    • Applications = Software = Programs
    • Online software = Web-based software = Webware = Webapp
  • 12. How is it possible?
    • What makes it possible for a Website to work as a computer program?
    • Consumers have more bandwidth and faster computers.
    • Internet programmers use a new programming technique: Ajax.
  • 13. AJAX
    • AJAX = Asynchronous JavaScript and XML
    • Ajax is a programming technique, or many different technologies working together.
    • Unlike traditional HTML web pages that must reload the entire page when updating user input, applications using Ajax can constantly update small amounts of information.
    • JavaFX & Silverlight are two newer techniques.
  • 14. Ajax Demo
  • 15. Advantages to Webware or Why Librarians (Should) Love Web-based Applications
  • 16. Web 2.0 + Libraries = Terrific Service!
    • Web 2.0 is perfect for libraries, librarians and our patrons, alike!
    • Our library patrons, like us, work, study, and get news and entertainment from many different locations (computers).
  • 17. No Downloads Required
    • Remember, the Web , not your computer, is the computing platform!
    Advantage #1:
  • 18. Better Access to Applications & Data
    • Your patrons’ information and programs are available from any Internet-connected computer.
    Advantage #2
  • 19. Expand Library Services for Free
    • There is an ever growing variety of programs available (many of which your library would not be able to easily - or cheaply - provide on your patron computers).
    • Most online programs are free or available to a single user at a reasonable cost.
    Advantage #3
  • 20. Incorporating the Web
    • Libraries have been using Websites as reference sources and have been incorporating online information into their collections for years now.
    • Why not add online productivity tools to library services?
  • 21. Webware Is Easy To Use
    • Office-type Webware has been specifically developed to look like and work like traditional software.
    • Most other Webware (photo editing or video uploading, for instance) was developed to be easy to learn and use!
    Advantage #4
