Library 2.0 is not just about changing interactions with students and faculty. It’s about transforming the way we work, about new ways of connecting: with students and faculty, yes, but also with one another and with colleagues at other institutions and organizations. It’s not easy being 2.0. Tools, techniques, and ideas continue to emerge and evolve, requiring constant learning and re-learning. The latest innovation could just as easily turn out to be The-Flavor-of–the-Month as The-Next-Big-Thing. It’s hard to keep track of it all when there’s concrete work to be done. Liss will describe the results of a summer research leave focused on developing 2.0 learning activities for library staff. He’ll talk about staff understanding and use of 2.0 tools and technologies, about 2.0 learning at academic libraries, and about programs and activities to help staff learn about Library 2.0 by using Library 2.0, leaving them better equipped to move forward in the services they provide their communities.
