Module 3: Library 2.0 and participatory library services

Posted by arlekeno on December 28, 2011

I like the idea that web 2.0 is an attitude more than a technology. I suppose we always could have created our own content and interacted… now it is just easier.

THE 4 c’S OFR WEB 2.0

With the emergence of social networking sites, came the concept of Library 2.0, where libraries and information agencies harness not just the Web 2.0 technologies but the underlying principles (or 4Cs) of Web 2.0 – collaboration, conversation, community and content creation (or co-creation)… (AND MAYBE CROWD SOURCING).

ANYWAY: Some possible online Learning Journal tasks.

Arizona State University has gone one step further in developing regular short YouTube clips, called The Library Minute, where the host of this program (one of the ASU librarians) takes one minute of library users time to inform them about a new service, tools, or present ‘how-to-use’ guide. This is part of a fuller suite of Web 2.0 services which are published via thelibrarychannel: News, Information, and Announcements from ASU Libraries (using a WordPress blog as the channel’s engine).

ActivityVisit ASU’s collection of The Library Minute videos and view five (5) of these one minute videos, then visit two (2) of the other Web 2.0 tools used as part of the ASU Library Channel suite at http://lib.asu.edu/librarychannel/. Write a critical evaluation on ASU Libraries’ use of these platforms to achieve the 4Cs of social media (in no more than 350 words).

 


ACTIVITYREAD the post A to Z of Social Networking for Libraries (22 January, 2010) on the Social Networking for Libraries blog. Consider this advice in terms of a library and information agency that you know (as an employee or user). Select advice from five (5) letters of this A-Z list and consider how these may be applied to this library to help it embrace a Library 2.0 ethos. Write up your findings as a post (of no more than 350 words in your OLJ).

 


 

ACTIVITYView this YouTube video called ‘Building Academic Library 2.0’. This is part of a symposium sponsored by Librarians Association of the University of California, Berkeley Division in 2007. While this presentation is over one (1) hour in duration, there are a number of key points raised by a number of speakers, including the keynote speaker Meredith Farkas, that relate to any library or information agency that is trying to transfrom their library into a 2.0 Library. 

Consider advice provided by one or more of the speakers in terms of a library and information agency that you know (as an employee or user). Select five (5) key pieces of advice from these speakers, and consider how these may be applied to your library to help it embrace a Library 2.0 ethos. Write up your findings as a post (of no more than 350 words in your OLJ).

 

Websites for libraries.. I wonder how much of this would apply to using an FB page? Mathews, B. (2009). Web design matters: Ten essentials for any library site. Library Journal, (15 February). Retrieved from http://www.libraryjournal.com/article/CA6634712.html?industryid=47126

What is a web 2.o Librarian? http://www.online-information.co.uk/online09/files/freedownloads.new_link1.1080622103251.pdf

I like this criteria.

Sees the potential in using content sources like the Open

Content Alliance, Google Book Search and

OpenWorldCat.

Thats part if my Assessment task right there!
