Itâ€™s such an exciting time to be in the information business. I know that libraries have gone through major transitions before. I mean, I canâ€™t even imagine what the shift from card catalog to OPAC was like, even though I was alive during that transition.
The excitement, for me, has to do with the increasing demand for library instruction, the potential for libraries to become content creators (in addition to providers), and all things related to Web 2.0.
Not mentioned in the article is the idea of Learning 2.0. This ties into the ambient learning that Bob and I sometimes talk about. Learning 2.0 is something Iâ€™ve thought about in the context of Information Literacy instruction. Iâ€™m looking forward to seeing what the education community has to say about Learning 2.0.
Speaking of this, Feed my Brain has an awesome reading list. Iâ€™ve only read like 3, but I want to read nearly all of them.
What an exciting time to be involved in all of this!
