From keynote speaker, Andrew Pace (NCSU):
2.0 is all about better, faster, cheaper–better Internet, better interfaces. Yet libraries failed to notice that even though the sky wasn’t falling, it was changing color all around us. Libraries need to “get on the bus or get off at the next stop” NOW.

- Give people what they want–self check-out, personalized service, better spaces
- Be where the user is–RSS, MySpace, instant messaging, SecondLife,FaceBook
- Make it more efficient–Self check-in, RFID, mass digitization, RDF, FAST(Faceted Access to Subjet Terms),
