Web 2.0 to Library 2.0 - A Beginner's Guide

Excuse the advertising but I promised to help get the word out on this double act I am doing with the inimitable Paul Sutherland from Christchurch City Library.

We have already done the first session down in Christchurch. It had a couple of rough edges, but I think we managed to kick the series off. The plan is to have two more sessions before Christmas. One in Auckland, the other in Hamilton. Hamilton is already full.

However, the Auckland one is still open. And big thanks to Auckland University for their help in sourcing the venue!

A one day seminar brought to you in association with LIANZA, in it's commitment to foster professional development.

Date: Saturday 17 November, 2007
Time: 8:45 am to 4 pm
Cost: $320 for
LIANZA members & $410 for non members
Location: Level 2, Room 231, Kate
Edger Information Commons, Auckland University Number of Participants: 16
minimum to 20 maximum Event Leaders: Paul Reynolds & Paul Sutherland

Enquiries: email

A one day learning event for library staff which focuses on the frameworks and tools of the participatory web - the Web 2.0 environment.

Participants will be offered some thoughts and ideas and will be encouraged to explore and use some the tools which Web 2.0 offers and to look at the possibilities for their own Library 2.0. The event is practically based and will be constructed to ensure that participants are engaged and have fun.

The day is aimed at people who have reasonable IT user skills i.e. they are familiar with the Internet, email and use of applications such as word processing. It is not designed for IT experts or those fluent in the use of Web 2.0 tools

The cost of attendance at the event covers morning and afternoon teas and lunch. Participants will receive resource material to take away. Travel costs etc are the responsibility of participants or their employers.

No preparation is necessary

Participants are expected to use some of the tools they have been exposed to and to contribute to an ongoing forum. These tasks will not be onerous.

Participants will:
- understand the nature of web 2.0 tools and services as a framework of web based activity
- understand the potential of web 2.0 tools for library activity
- understand the potential of web 2.0 tools as devices to enhance personalisation, participation and collaboration
- be able to demonstrate knowledge of a number of web 2.0 tools
- be able to use a blog, find, access and use an RSS feed or live bookmark, and able to identify, evaluate and use other APIs
- have set up a personal/professional blog
- have an ongoing commitment to continue to use a number of the
tools in collaborative ways with other participants - have identified potential uses of web 2.0 tools for their employing institutions

If you are a registered professional attending this seminar don't forget to record it in your Re validation Journal under Body of Knowledge # 7.

Sadly, I won't be able to make it, Paul. Though I suspect I was not the target market anyway...

I will be in Wellington that day for a strategy meeting for NZKM. Reluctantly, I must admit, the last thing I want to do with my precious Saturday is have a committee meeting. But it can not be avoided.

However, I am interested in any feedback you get from these sessions around NZ, especially as I am about to run a survey on a related issue, "knowledge management" within the library profession.

Will post more on this shortly.

The chances that I’ll ever see one of these outside a Swiss exhibition hall? Not high.Replica Rolex watches, whose own minute repeater was dubbed the RD1 for the incredible amount of “research Watches Replica and development” put into its production, followed suit in a 45mm case. Though, in spite of Replica Rolex Watches its presence at this year’s Geneva exhibitions, it’s a Designer handbags concept watch and will not be sold in its present UK Replica watches form aaaa.
