The Future of Libraries #lib2013 https://youtu.be/Odfy8H7pUzc To understand the future of the library, we must look beyond its walls, to the tools and contexts – both physical and digital – where learning takes place.
In school, where the disruptive innovations of open access and online courses are changing the architecture of education, the “embedded librarian” and the “single search box” aren’t just nice ideas: they’re mission-critical.

Can libraries survive in a digital world? (BBC Video) http://bbc.in/gFpxkl Can libraries survive in a digital world?
Publishers stand accused of "nonsensical" policies on e-book lending to libraries. So, with nearly $1bn spent on e-books last year in the US alone, what does this mean for the institutions already at risk of closure?
"People who say 'we don't need libraries because it's all on Google' either don't understand libraries or don't understand the internet at all."

We’re all doing different stuff. The other school librarians I know are not doing what I am doing. Some don’t even know about the state databases. Some maintain websites and blogs; others do not. Some have seriously retooled; others have not. In the 21st century, what does a school librarian do?
Libraries for a post-literate society https://bit.ly/aIlf9C Libraries for a post-literate society
School libraries are often the bellwether programs in their schools. If we as librarians support and use learning resources that are meaningful, useful and appealing to our students, so might the classroom teacher.
The Library Web Site of the Future http://www.insidehighered.com/views/2009/02/17/bell The Library Web Site of the Future
For faculty, at least two powerful motivators should drive their personal interest in expecting a great library Web site. One is their own need to easily find scholarly content that supports their research. The other is a desire to have students discover the resources that strengthen their research and result in high quality assignments.

LibGuides https://springshare.com/libguides/index.html LibGuides is a web 2.0 library knowledge sharing system.
Think of it as social networks meets wikis meets bookmarks meets blogs. And it cooks your breakfast too! LibGuides helps librarians share knowledge and information, while highlighting and promoting the library resources and services to the community.
LibGuides is a system for publishing information and creating social networks centered around the library resources. Librarians create Guides (we use the word loosely - it can be any content, on any topic, for any purpose) and then publish them online. The Guides contain documents, links, podcasts, rss feeds, videos, etc. Users can participate in interactive polls and rate the links and resources.

Web 2.0: Building the New Library http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue/45/miller/ Web 2.0: Building the New Library
Web 2.0' is a hot story out on the blogosphere right now, with an army of advocates facing off against those who argue that it is nothing new, and their allies with painful memories of Dot Com hysteria in the 1990s. Even respectable media outlets such as Business Week are getting excited, and an expensive conference in San Francisco at the start of October had to turn people away as it passed over 800 registrations.
So, is Web 2.0 something real? Does it mean anything for the way in which we continue to go about our work? Or is it yet another bubble that will burst if we simply ignore it for a few months?
Library 2.0 Theory http://www.webology.org/2006/v3n2/a25.html Library 2.0 Theory: Web 2.0 and Its Implications for Libraries
his article posits a definition and theory for "Library 2.0". It suggests that recent thinking describing the changing Web as "Web 2.0" will have substantial implications for libraries, and recognizes that while these implications keep very close to the history and mission of libraries, they still necessitate a new paradigm for librarianship.
The paper applies the theory and definition to the practice of librarianship, specifically addressing how Web 2.0 technologies such as synchronous messaging and streaming media, blogs, wikis, social networks, tagging, RSS feeds, and mashups might intimate changes in how libraries provide access to their collections and user support for that access.
Library 2.0 : page on Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Library_2.0 Library 2.0 : page on Wikipedia
Library 2.0 is a loosly defined model for a modernised form of library service that reflects a transition within the library world in the way that services are delivered to users. The concept of Library 2.0 borrows from that of Web 2.0 and follows some of the same underlying philosophies. This includes online services such as the use of OPAC systems and an increased flow of information from the user back to the library.
Library 2.0 also attempts to harness the library user in the design and implementation of library services by encouraging feedback and participation. Proponents of this concept expect that ultimately the Library 2.0 model for service will replace traditional, one-directional service offerings that have characterized libraries for centuries.
