  • You say “Moore’s”, I say “Mooers” • Moore’s Law – Since the invention of the integrated circuit … the number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit has increased exponentially, doubling approximately every two years. - Gordon E Moore (1965)
  • You say “Moore’s”, I say “Mooers” • Mooers' Law – “An information retrieval system will tend not to be used whenever it is more painful and troublesome for a customer to have information than for him not to have it.” - Calvin Mooers (1959) “We cannot assume people will want our information, even if we know they need our information.” - Peter Morville (2005)

  • Web 2.0
  • Web 1.0
  • Web 1.0 • Slow access speeds (e.g. dial-up modem) • Limited availability • Static web pages • Little interactivity • Mostly text …lots and lots of text …on a grey background! • Web sites that would only work with one type of web browser • The “Read Only Web”
  • Web 2.0 • Fast access speeds (e.g. broadband) • Wide availability (e.g. wireless) • Dynamic web pages • High interactivity • Lots of multimedia • Web sites that work on many devices (e.g. PCs, mobile phones, etc) • The “Read/Write Web”
  • Super connected • Web 1.0 was about connecting computers – dial-up → ISDN → broadband → wireless • Web 2.0 is about connecting people – instant messaging & chatrooms – Skype & VoIP – social networking sites – virtual words (Second Life, Club Penguin, etc) – communities of common interest – microblogging (Twitter, etc)
  • Some Web 2.0 concepts • Applications delivered via a web browser • Exploiting and (sometimes freely) sharing data • User participation, empowerment, and collaboration • Social networking • Communities of interest • Tagging and folksonomies • Mashups and other unintended uses
  • Web 2.0 facts and figures • 3 billion images on Flickr 2 • 312 million edits on Wikipedia 228 • 200 million Facebook accounts 70 • 113 million blogs tracked by Technorati • 110 million MySpace accounts • 37 million books on LibraryThing 24 • 9.4 million editors on Wikipedia 7.2 • 2.9 million Wikipedia articles 2.4

  • Just how much information is there out there?

  • Freeconomics • “Never in history has so much innovation been offered to so many for so little [cost]. The world’s most exciting businesses – technology, transport, media, medicine and finance – are increasingly defined by the word ‘free’ … … It is a difficult proposition to beat.” – Michael Schrage, “Why giveaways are changing the rules of business” (Financial Times, 2006)
  • Freeconomics • His new ambition, [Ryanair's founder Michael O'Leary] told the Financial Times in 2004, was to give customers free tickets, perhaps even to pay them to fly. He predicted: “In a decade or so, airlines will pay travellers to distribute people around Europe.” “The big giveaway” (Guardian, May 2008)
  • Free: The Future of a Radical Price “In the future, [Anderson] argues, when we talk of the ‘money economy’ we will talk of the ‘reputation economy’ and the ‘time economy’ in the same breath.”
  • “What happens when things get free?” - Professor Carver Mead, Professor Emeritus at the California Institute of Technology
  • What happens… …to the music industry when I can fit every song ever recorded onto my MP3 player?
  • What happens… …when free wireless internet access is available everywhere?
  • What happens… …to the library when I can fit every book ever written on my e-book reader?
  • Researcher of the Future (2008) • The information environment in 2017: – electronic books, driven by consumer demand, will finally become established as the primary format for educational textbooks and scholarly books and monographs, as well as reference formats. – the most significant impact for research will not be how things get published, but how they get accessed. http://www.bl.uk/news/pdf/googlegen.pdf
  • Researcher of the Future (2008) • The challenges – reduce barriers to information – understand why users “power browse” web content – librarians rarely design information systems that match user behaviour – importance of flexibility at all levels – better analysis of usage data – importance of information skills
  • OCLC Perceptions Report (2005) • 30% have never heard of databases • Starting place for an information search – Search engine 84% – Email 6% – Library web site 1% • 93% are satisfied/very satisfied with their experience of using a search engine • …compared to 84% for librarian-assisted searches!
  • OCLC Perceptions Report (2005) • Other than search engines, how do you learn about electronic information sources? All respondents College students Friends 61% 67% Adverts 39% 26% Relatives 37% 26% Online chat 22% 26% Blogs 9% 13% Librarian 8% 33%
  • “Creating the new library universe” • National & State Libraries Australasia draft paper – access is our primary driver – digital is mainstream – no job will be unchanged – new web technologies and community digital content are shaping user expectations and behaviour – some things we have always done, we will no longer do – experimentation and risk are necessary – people want services and spaces to be welcoming and easy to use, and they want to be independent The Big Bang: Creating the new library universe
  • Library 2.0 • “...a loosely defined model for a modernized form of library service that reflects a transition within the library world in the way that services are delivered to users. This includes ... an increased flow of information from the user back to the library.” Wikipedia article for “Library 2.0”
  • Library 2.0 • Use of “2.0” technologies (blogs, wikis, RSS feeds, social networking, etc) • Actively involving users in developments • Delivering services directly to users • Libraries without walls (“The Third Place”) • The “Read/Write Library” • Liberating your data & making it work harder • Libraries needing to be flexible to change
  • Library 2.0 is a state of mind
  • Librarian 2.0?
  • Librarian 2.0!
  • Charlotte & Mecklenburg County Public Library
  • Play and experimentation
  • It’s okay to play! • “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” – attrib: George Bernard Shaw • 2007 Library & Information Show Workshop on Library 2.0 – Q: I don’t get paid to play, I get paid to work – A: So, don’t call it “play”, call it “professional development”
  • Admit it, haven’t you wanted to do this in your library…

  • Dance your fines away… • “Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting a teen librarian who keeps Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) set up all the time so she can invoke it as need be. For example, if a teen has overdue books, she will dance-off against the person, and if the teen wins, the librarian will waive the fines.” The Shifted Librarian: Gaming for Fines (Jan 2007)
