I’m still working on posting my powerpoint slides – they’ll appear her soon – it just might take another day or two (software issues). But until then…
A few people asked me if a Web 2.0 “best practices” in libraries existed, and a few others mentioned that my talk was useful, but was a lot to soak in. In both cases, there’s a great resource for you – Michael Stephens’ Web 2.0 and Libraries: Best Practices for Social Software, which ALA recently published as one of their Library Technology Reports.
Stephens is great – he really understands all the new web 2.0 concepts (he even has a blog at tametheweb.com), and he knows how these new tools can be used in libraries. His Web 2.0 and Libraries report includes many examples in all types of libraries – some are easy-to-do free things, others are more involved, custom-built tools.
But all are useful to read about, and I think you will learn something you didn’t know if you pick up a copy of his Report.
