  • 1. Image source: Part Two Web 2.0 and Library 2.0 Presentation by: Eddie Byrne Librarian & Web Administrator May 2007 Dublin City Public Libraries & Archive, Dublin, Ireland
  • 2. This is a two-part Presentation --- Part Two: Library 2.0 Part One: Web 2.0 |
  • 3. Library 2.0 • Library 2.0 is all about library users -- keeping those we have while actively seeking those who do not currently use our services. It's about embracing those ideas and technologies that can assist libraries in delivering services to these groups, and it's about participation -- involving users in service creation and evaluation.quot; Michael Casey, LibraryCrunch • quot;Library 2.0 is very much influenced by technology-driven, two- way, social interactions between staff and staff or staff and patrons.quot; John Blyberg, • quot;Library 2.0 is the natural evolution of library services to a level where the library user is in control of how and when she gets access to the services she needs and wants.quot; Thomas Brevik, Library 1.5
  • 4. Library 2.0 • Gives library users a participatory role in the services libraries offer and the way they are used. • Embracing it becomes necessary so as to be in a position to respond to changing user needs and ensuring the library is in a strong position to effectively meet those needs now and in the future.
  • 5. Library 2.0 Implementation Instant Messaging (IM) & Virtual Reference • IM enables real-time text communication between individuals. Analogous to the face-to-face reference interview. Considered 'Library 2.' even though in existence for some time, as it gives the user a presence within the library web space, and it facilitates collaboration between the patron and the library. Examples: (using Meebo) Lansing Public Library - Exeter Public Library, RI -

  • 7. Library 2.0 Implementation Instant Messaging • On your blog or webpage, you set up Meebo, Plugoo, or Gabbly. • Visitors on your site can then see the chat window and type a message in it to send it to you. • This chat service is directly connected to your Instant Messenger and forwards you in real time all the messages your visitors send you. • You answer to the visitor directly from your Instant Messenger in real time.
