    22. 22. So, where is Portugal in Library 2.0 practices? … not all good… but then nobody’s perfect

    44. 45. What’s Missing <ul><li>Professional Association Guidance </li></ul><ul><ul><li>APBAD (ALA equivalent): a single one-week after-hours training in Lisbon in 2005. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>APBAD: After the April congress no further action or position </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No action or position known from the APDIS (MLA equivalent) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Full support from INCITE (SLA equivalent) but the smaller association </li></ul></ul>
    45. 46. What’s Missing <ul><li>Updated Continued Training </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Most practitioners think Library 2.0, and sometimes even Web 2.0, is just Blogs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lots of confusion on the CTDI’07 meeting when wikis and podcasts declared web 2.0 tools </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>INCITE will organize a localized version of 23things during the 2nd quarter 2008, open to practitioners, LIS students, LIS teachers, etc (affiliation with INCITE not a requirement) </li></ul></ul>
    46. 47. What’s missing <ul><li>LIS curricula </li></ul><ul><ul><li>At the undergraduate level the students are forcing the matter: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Oporto Polytechnic Institute </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Oporto University </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Not so on the other undergraduate LIS degrees. But they have 1.0 curricula </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At Master’s level, strangely, it’s the archivists who are more active with 2.0 tools </li></ul></ul>
    47. 48. Conclusion <ul><li>Although it is possible to point at least one portuguese example of almost every “Best Practice” imaginable… </li></ul><ul><li>Usually there is ONLY ONE example </li></ul><ul><li>In some aspects Portugal is behind every other Latin Country </li></ul>
    48. 49. Conclusion <ul><li>The need for Library 2.0, </li></ul><ul><ul><li>due to the ubiquity of Patron 2.0, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a consequence of the ubiquity of Web 2.0 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>is the same in </li></ul><ul><ul><li>every developed country </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>every type of library / information service </li></ul></ul>
    49. 50. INCITE’s “ action this day ” <ul><li>Defend Web 2.0 in LIS curricula </li></ul><ul><li>Web 2.0 Advocacy </li></ul><ul><li>Lead by practice: </li></ul><ul><ul><li> ( the aggregator) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> ( 2nd Qtr 2008) </li></ul></ul>
