  • Suggestions
    • Google, Yahoo, etc have a different mission to HEIs and different priorities
    • Separate functionality and figure out what your core library systems should handle and what other (web) services will handle better
    • Don’t rely on YouTube or Flickr as your sole repository of information … but do experiment with their apis
    • Accept that the web giants will do some things better
    • Learn usability lessons from Web 2.0 sites
    • Disseminate through Web 2.0 sites
