  • Beyond the superficialities of buzzwords like Web 2.0 and Library 2.0, is an underlying shift in how collections can be built and managed and accessed. In the Web 2.0 world, collections do not have to be “collections for the ages,” but can be more fluid online aggregations brought together for specific, yet perhaps ephemeral, purposes. Web 2.0 collections can be built by librarians, by the users themselves, or can be by-products of other online activities, such as tagging and social bookmarking. For example, online photo sharing sites such as Flickr are used to create virtual library collections. Lightweight online catalogs such as LibraryThing or Shelfari are used to build personal library collections or to highlight parts of larger library collections. Social bookmarking tools such as produce collaborative collections of web sites on various topics. Recommender systems in place on sites like Amazon can be used as discovery tools for library acquisitions. This presentation will explore some collection-related uses of Web 2.0 tools and open a discussion on their implications for librarians and library users. {And how we define collections}
