What is different now?
Library 2.0 is a !
state of mind
• Working to meet changing user needs
• Trusting our users (radical trust)
• Getting rid of the culture of perfect
• Aware of emerging technologies and
• Looking outside of the library world for
applications, opportunities, inspiration
We really need
to do these Web
2.0 things all the
other libraries are
I think our library really needs a blog
to be relevant to our patrons. Don’t
worry, I’ll handle everything.
This will be the best
library blog ever!
Why does it fail?
• Use of social software is not seen as furthering
the library’s mission
• Social software is treated as someone’s !
• Social software is not planned for strategically
like other technologies
• Once the newness wears off, people are less
motivated to contribute
• Staff are not given time to work on social
