    30. 30. Users = Collaborators “ Turns out, many library users did not want to be mere users of libraries, library systems, and library services.  They wanted to contribute to the richness and value of ’our’ systems by adding reviews, comments, tags, ratings, and even -- perish the thought -- their own original creative works.  They wanted to help us make library information systems even better and more useful, and they didn't want to do it merely by completing an annual feedback survey.” - Tom Peters

    44. 44. Participatory Librarianship <ul><li>“ Let us look specifically at how participatory networks can be used in the library’s role as facilitator of knowledge through conversation. An obvious example is libraries hosting blogs and Wikis for their communities creating virtual meeting spaces for individuals and groups, just as libraries do in the physical world. Indeed, these are increasingly useful functions for libraries.” </li></ul><ul><li>- Participatory Networks: The Library as Conversation , p. 23 </li></ul>
