  • Hi. My name is Lisa Bunker and I am a Children’s Librarian for the Tucson-Pima Public Library System. Take a look at technology news websites such as Slashdot and Digg on any given day and you will see several references to something most people are calling “Web 2.0.” What is it? Definition: “a second generation of the web that is focused on the ability for people to collaborate and share information online.” (webopedia.com) Blogs, wikis, and community-based web services such as Flickr and LibraryThing are all seen as components of Web 2.0. Not a new technology, it’s a new attitude. If some of these terms are unfamiliar, we have provided a glossary in the handouts you were given.
