Some interesting discussion in the blogosphere around Library 2.0 (a major subject at the recent LIANZA Conference). Many librarians have reacted strongly to A manifesto for our times (published in the August 2007 issue of American Libraries).
The Annoyed Librarian bit back with A Librarian’s Anti-2.0 Manifesto.
Some more contributions to the debate:
- The Cult of Twopointopia – The Annoyed Librarian’s reply to the comments on her original post
- Do we need a translator here? – Meredith Farkas on “Information wants to be free”
- Avoiding the Poles – T. Scott
- Voices of Reason – Roy Tennant weighs in
At Conference, Paul Sutherland and Brian Flaherty had their fingers on the pulse with their session Library X.0 Beta. Brenda Chawner presented a session More than a passing fancy: Librarians’ use of Web 2.0.
