What Is Library 2.0???

There has been a lot of discussion about Library 2.0 -- what is it and what role does it play in libraries. This post at MaisonBisson really explains things well. 

For me, Library 2.0 is not about technology.  Library 2.0 seeks to harvest good ideas from outside and use them to deliver improved and new services, often times in an effort to reach a new target population.  Library 2.0 is, at its core, a way of thinking, a way of operating.  It’s a framework for integrating change into all levels of library operationsIt's in our effort to reach this new level of service that we will utilize these new, often times Web 2.0, technologies.
