NAG 2007 Conference workshop

I think I’ve just about recovered from my first NAG Conference, which was held this year at Keele University…

Ronald Milne takes a question from Ken Chad

A big “thank you” to everyone who came along to the “Web 2.0 – It’s Okay to Play” workshops and I hope it sparked one or two ideas that you might want to pursue!

more links

Kathryn Greenhill has been posting some excellent and level-headed articles about Library 2.0 on her Librarians Matter — the most recent of which is “What’s new about Library 2.0? Shift in power“.

If you were intrigued (or horrified!) by tagging and folksonomoies, then check out Ellyssa Kroski’s blog post “The Hive Mind: Folksonomies and User-Based Tagging“.

One of the most interesting staff development projects has been the Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County “Learning 2.0 Program“, designed by Helene Blowers.

I’m sure that there are at 100 other things I could have linked to, so please feel free to post a comment with worthy links!

final note

I didn’t seek permission to include any of the blogs and wikis in the presentation and most were just picked at random as examples. Hopefully the owners didn’t mind me linking to them!
