  • I am a librarian. It occurs to me that library management systems could use some help from open tagging to help keep the catalog fresh, relevant and accessible, avoiding tags like 'cookery' and 'design' assigned by CIP(non-users of the information). Also some library management systems currently allow the librarian to add websites, perhaps opening this up so that the users can create their own basket or share their PLEs would promote professional communication among researchers.

    All of these and more web 2.0 applications applied to library collections would increase a broader and deeper use of the collection.
    However, libraries will continue to be repositories for fee based information sources to support proprietary research in business, academia and governments/ quasi-government agencies such as Federal Reserve, Food & Drug Agency to name a few in the US.
    Information is the highest desired commodity, libraries will continue to be a repository for information owned or leased by organizations.
