Through the new Web, content flows in a variety of directions that depend on the behavior of those who produce the information and those who use it.” -Paul Bausch; Keynote Speech for “Northwest Online” library technology conference Web 2.0 works in libraries because of: -Openness, Ease of Use, Innovation, Social Interaction, Creation of Content, Sharing, Decentralization, Participation, and Trust Blogs Public blogs promote the library and allow for dialogue between users and staff.Staff blogs centralize communication, reduce email, and increase staff proficiency in using 2.0 technology.Best Practices for Library Blogs Train staff well and build enthusiasm through contests, parties, etc.Hold off on full-scale publicity until there are significant posts and comments on the blog.Consider appointing someone to provide editorial oversight.Examples of successful library blogs:Blogging platforms that offer free hosting: Ann Arbor Public Library: http://www.aadl.org/WordPress: http://www.wordpress.org/ NY Public Library: http://www.nypl.org/blog/BlogSpot: http://www.blogspot.com/ Drupal is an open-source blogging platform for users with their own web hosting: http://drupal.org/ RSS (Really Simple Syndication) “A family of web feed formats, specified in XML and used for Web Syndication.” News, weather, stock updates; also includes blogs or any other frequently updated contentAggregators: “manages user’s subscriptions to feeds from various sources and updates with new content automatically” -Find popular aggregators at: feedster.com, pubsub.com, blogpulse.com, technorati.com Aggregators and RSS can be useful to libraries in many ways, including: -Notifying patrons of important events and providing circulation updates -Pushing new materials and services -The possibilities are endless!
