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.

Library 2.0

  • Do good better–online catalog, semantic web
  • 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),
  • Rinse and Repeat

See Pace’s complete presentation and others at his website.  This presentation and others from the Conference are also at the WilsWorld Conference website
