  • 2006
  • What is Library 2.0
    • Coined by Michael Casey on his Library Crunch blog in 2005.
    • “ With Library 2.0, library services are frequently evaluated and updated to meet the changing needs of library users. Library 2.0 also calls for libraries to encourage user participation and feedback in the development and maintaining of library services. The active and empowered library user is a significant component of Library 2.0. With information and ideas flowing in both directions – from the library to the user and from the user to the library – library services have the ability to evolve and improve on a constant and rapid basis. The user is participant, co-creator, builder and consultant – whether the product is virtual or physical.” -- Wikipedia

    • “ It’s the simplest lesson of the Internet: it’s the people stupid. We don’t have computers because we want to interact with machines; we have them because they allow us to communicate more effectively with other people.” ─ Douglas Rushkoff, Get Back in the Box: Innovation from the Inside Out
