“Library 2.0”

Southeastern Massachusetts Library System newsletter

Southeastern Massachusetts Library System newsletter

This website is part of our effort to use “social software” like blogs (this website is a blog), podcasts (our audio interviews are podcasts), and Flickr (where we have posted our collection of images of war posters and historical photographs from the 1940s)  to move information outside the physical walls of the library and to invite people to enrich our collection by contributing content of their own.

So-called “Library 2.0” is gaining more and more attention within the library profession as a way to connect digitally with our customers, and with people anywhere in the world who have access to the Internet. Quincy’s local newspaper The Patriot Ledger noted this trend in an article it published back in November of 2008, and the Quincy reference staff wrote an article about this website for our December 2008 regional library newsletter recommending other libraries try similar projects.

We would love to hear from you about your experience using this website. Please let us know what worked for you and what did not.  Please share your suggestions and ideas.  Check out our Library profile on Facebook, and if you have your own Facebook account, please consider becoming a fan!

Thank you!
