Library 2.0–Looking at the Future

Library 2.0 is, as I’ve already blogged about, one of those things that sort of hits at only certain sections of our clientele. When reading the Learn and Play articles, it seemed like some of the ideas were really out there and not approachable to users that are already not technologically savvy. But, there are ways that the library can use 2.0 concepts to help those who are less savvy. Some of this can be done by building them into already familiar tools, like the self check outs or OPAC. Personally, I’d love to be able to connect my goodreads to the catalogue, or build “libraries” of books from the actual library. I know a number of customers who would love to be able to record all the books they check out so they can remember what they’ve read. Just my 2.0cents!
