  22. 22. Bits &Pieces• Open source versus vendor products - chat, virtual help desk, communicator, equipment bookings• Open source - use of networks, technical support to find solutions• Abandonment of virtual desk in favour of chat, SMS• Libguides - divided opinions. Not flexible enough. Many libraries using open source - eg Word Press• Many libraries reducing face-to-face help desks or phrasing out altogether in favour of combined inquiry desk• Enhanced subject guides – video, Web 2.0, embedded chat, animation, etc.• Innovation - great examples of using web 2.0, developing apps, mobile services• Recognition to question sacred cows and legacy services• Equal parts of uncertainty and excitement about the future of our profession
