If you have lemons, can you prepare good lemonade? A devil’s advocate to library 2.0 in 13 slides A presentation to Web2pointyou Conference School of Information Studies, McGill University Nasser Saleh Friday February 13, 2009

The argument Academic libraries face a key question in a new environment: what is the role of the library in providing access to knowledge in today’s digitally networked world? One answer has been to actively incorporate features of the online – “Web 2.0” – world into library services, thereby creating “Library 2.0.”

Library 2.0 Library 2.0 means bringing interactive, collaborative, user-centered, and web-based technologies to library services and collections: Email reference/Q&A pages  Chat reference; Facebook pages Text-based tutorials  Streaming media tutorials with interactive databases Email mailing lists, webmasters  Blogs, wikis, RSS feeds Controlled classification schemes  Tagging coupled with controlled schemes OPAC  Personalized social network interface Catalog of largely reliable print and electronic holdings  Catalog of reliable and suspect holdings, web-pages, blogs, wikis, etc. Maness, J. (2006). "Library 2.0 Theory: Web 2.0 and Its Implications for Libraries". Webology, 3 (2), Article 25. Available at: http://www.webology.ir/2006/v3n2/a25.html

A devil’s advocate to library 2.0 The discussion about library 2.0 is more of a utopian world where everyone likes to participate and collaborate. A quick look at Wikipedia: we can tell how many users contribute compared to the ones who are registered or who only read articles.

Questions about the academic Library 2.0 Technological constraints: Are Library 2.0 technologies both scaleable and stable enough for widespread implementation? What happens if a particular platform disappears, or is replaced by something incompatible?

Other questions… Accessibility: How can libraries ensure Library 2.0 services are accessible and useful for all patrons, overcoming barriers imposed by language and cultural diversity? IP/copyright concerns: What intellectual property concerns exist with allowing patrons to post information on library-hosted forums? Who owns the copyright to user-submitted comments or book reviews?

And...more questions… Staffing: What kind of technical staff is necessary to build and maintain Library 2.0 services? What kind of training is necessary for other library staff? What about the current ones! Cost: What new costs emerge for the technological and staffing needs? Did you hear of the recent budget cuts in Canadian universities? Impact on nature/culture of the library: More broadly, how might the integration of Library 2.0 services impact the traditional nature of the library?

But ...we still want lemonade

RSS IM Drupal Wiki

Using Wiki in design projects

Using social networking

Finally... Library 2.0 would provide many opportunities to academic libraries but there are many challenges as well Academic libraries are at a crossroad to restructure services to meet the changes in both users and collections. Library schools need to prepare new graduates to meet these changes.
