What do the terms Web 2.0 and Library 2.0 mean for academic libraries and librarians? Join our panel of 2.0 practitioners and experts for a day of exploration and discovery as we navigate the 2.0 landscape, exploring what 2.0 tools and technologies can do for academic library users. Through a combination of presentations, discussion, and hands-on activities, our dynamic speakers introduce you to technologies such as blogs, wikis, RSS, mashups, social bookmarking, and online social networks. This interactive session provides practical examples of academic libraries that are using these tools and technologies, arms you with the expertise and techniques to introduce these technologies in your own library, and share strategies for getting buy-in from staff, administration, and patrons. A worthwhile day for those interested in implementing changes to keep up within the Web 2.0 world.

Academic Library 2.0 Unconference









The Academic Library 2.0 Unconference


We'll have at least an hour at the end of the day to answer questions and get some discussion going on the topics we've covered (or any other 2.0 topics, for that matter!). Each of the speakers will be available for a roundtable discussion on their presentation topics, so if we don't get to your questions throughout the day, save them for the unconference! Participants are also free to roam from conversation to conversation, depending on their own interests :)
