Great Expectations The future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed yet!
Expectations 1.0 • Yes the principles and foundations of librarianship have not changed. . . We have always done this. • The tools we use are entering a new era. And where we get the tools, how we use them, and how flexible and timely we can be is changing. • Will attitudes and aptitudes change if we don’t re-frame the conversation? Maybe.
Expectations 1.0 • Search • Retrieve • View • Print • Link • Navigate • Read • . . .
WEB 2.0 “Web 2.0 is a term often applied to a perceived ongoing transition of the World Wide Web from a collection of websites to a full-fledged computing platform serving web applications to end users. Ultimately Web 2.0 services are expected to replace desktop computing applications for many purposes.” Wikipedia
“Library 2.0 is an operating model that allows libraries to respond rapidly to market needs. This does not mean that we abandon our current users or our mission. It is a philosophy of rapid change, flexible organization structures, new Web 2.0 tools, and user participation that will put the library in a much stronger position, ready to efficiently and effectively meet the needs of a larger user population.”Michael Casey, LibraryCrunch.com blogGwinnett County PL
Library 2.0 is very much influenced by technology-driven, two-way, social interactions between staff and staff and staff and patrons. L2 has provided a framework within which we’ve been able to re-evaluate every aspect of classical librarianship with the end goal of usability and findability in mind.John Blyberg, Blyberg.net, AADL
