Book: Web 2.0 and Libraries

Michael Stephens has followed last year’s Library Technology ReportsWeb 2.0 & Libraries: Best Practices for Social Software — with another — Web 2.0 & Libraries: Trends and Technologies. According to Stephens:

. . . we’ll revisit some of the social tools presented in Web 2.0 & Libraries: Best Practices for Social Software, address some trends guiding social technology in libraries, take a look at some newer tools, and cover some best practices for using 2.0 tools in your library.

Topics include:

  • value-added blogging
  • building a community website with a blog
  • ten best practices for Flickr and libraries
  • libraries and social sites like MySpace, Facebook, YouTube
  • tagging and social bookmarking
  • messaging in a 2.0 World: Twitter & SMS
  • podcasting
  • The OPAC rebooted
  • how libraries such as the Hennepin County Library and the Arlington Heights Memorial Library are using 2.0 tools

    Michael Stephens is a wonderful resource! These articles are great and are available for free (if you live in Indiana) from the Inspire Databases. Other States may have a similar website that would make the publications available as well.
