  1. 1. Library 2.0 What does it mean for your library? Edward Sargent
  2. 2. What is Library 2.0 (L2)? <ul><li>L2 is about changing our services to reflect the needs of our patrons. </li></ul><ul><li>L2 is not just about technology. However, technology is a main driver in the movement. </li></ul><ul><li>L2 is virtual, it is 24/7, and invites participation of patrons in the library. </li></ul><ul><li>L2 uses top-notch, flexible software and systems. </li></ul>
  3. 3. L2 Manifesto <ul><li>I will educate myself about the information culture of my users and look for ways to incorporate what I learn into library services. </li></ul><ul><li>I will not be defensive about my library, but will look clearly at its situation and make an honest assessment about what can be accomplished. </li></ul><ul><li>I will recognize that libraries change slowly, and will work with my colleagues to expedite our responsiveness to change. </li></ul><ul><li>I will let go of previous practices if there is a better way to do things now, even if these practices once seemed so great. </li></ul><ul><li>I will not wait until something is perfect before I release it, and I'll modify it based on user feedback. </li></ul><ul><li>I will avoid requiring users to see things in librarians' terms but rather will shape services to reflect users' preferences and expectations. </li></ul><ul><li>I will be willing to go where users are, both online and in physical spaces, to practice my profession. </li></ul><ul><li>I will create open Web sites that allow users to join with librarians to contribute content in order to enhance their learning experience and provide assistance to their peers. </li></ul><ul><li>I will lobby for an open catalog that provides personalized, interactive features that users expect in online information environments. </li></ul><ul><li>I will encourage my library's administration to blog. </li></ul><ul><li>L2 Manifesto </li></ul>
