“Web 2.0,” originally coined as a marketing term, has now come to mean the creative, collaborative opportunities afforded by blogs, wikis, Google Documents, and similar tools. In running the library for a small charter school, I relied heavily on volunteer participation, scheduling volunteers to assist in the library or work book fairs. In particular, I used wikis for planning and display spaces and the suite of applications offered by Google Docs were used to allow volunteers and teachers to schedule themselves on shared websites. An added bonus was introducing parents to these 21st Century tools, giving them a slight edge over their increasingly computer-savvy offspring.
