CIL2006, Day 3: Paul Miller of Talis speaking about Web 2.0

Library 2.0:

  • the open library
  • push the library everywhere
  • engage with actual and potential user communities
  • disaggregate library systems and bring them together
  • building apps that make sense – like a set of Lego blocks
  • shared innovation – a blog devoted to developing a better catalog (I think)


  • wpopac – search, link, comment – built around WordPress
  • Greasemonkey widgets –
  • – his book jacket browse thing (I like this alot!)
  • Blyberg’s card catalog thing, with comments
  • These things are all done by individuals!

What would happen if we worked together?
