I am sooooo 2.0
Well, I've taken the leap (or the dive) into the pixelated world of Facebook. For those of you who are already Face-bookies, "friend" me! or check out the library page at
I'm hoping that this will be another way to make library announcements, give research tips, post book reviews, and links to good and/or fun stuff.
If you are not familiar with Facebook, this is one of the new-fangled social spaces. You can set up personal pages to post messages, pictures, videos, etc. You can also send pictures, graphics and much more to your friends. Not to mention the vibrating singing hamster - my favorite!
And what's 2.0 you ask? Web 2.0, and more specifically Library 2.0, is the notion that libraries and web services should be more interactive and user-friendly. While this has always been our goal in our face-to-face interactions, we're still trying to figure out the best way(s) to do this electronically. Its also a official sounding way of saying to want to try out all the new tools we can. (we blog! we wiki! we Facebook! we go cross-eyed staring at computer screens!)
