What are the Web 2.0 challenges to be faced?
Hasn’t Intute services being doing this for a long time, before the Web 2.0 term was coined?
Note of the above, the success was based on RDN’s user-focussed approaches, its outreach activities – being Web 2.0!
There are dangers associated with going down this route, with developing alternative approaches and doing nothing
In most online communities, 90% of users are lurkers who never contribute, 9% of users contribute a little, and 1% of users account for almost all the action. (Jakob Neilson, Oct 2006)
Would this level of popularity be possible on an institutional or even national repository?
There’s a need for risk assessment, risk management, etc. But this also applies when you are developing software, procuring development work, etc.
“… there is potential for institutions to push out their repository content to other services that have a more up to minute Web interface? This would not need to be a long term commitment and would enable institutions to cater in a more targeted way to their particular 'consumers'.

Open The Doors
“the library brand must go from institutional to personal. …
The social Web is not being build by augmenting traditional Web sites with new tools. …
Open the library doors, invite mass participation and relax the rules …
It will be messy … but mass participation & a little chaos often create exciting venues for collaboration, creativity, community building and transformation”
