What to Consider When Evaluating and Implementing Web 2.0 Tools in Your Library

  • Be adept at exploring new technologies. One of the most important things to remember when it comes to Web 2.0 is that there will always be new tools. Libraries must consider the training needs both for their staff and their users. Staff must be given time to learn and participate in the online world.
    • Build staff training programs for late-bloomers.
    • Let staff communicate and share what they are learning weekly using 1.0 methods, such as emerging technology committees or newsletters.
    • Encourage staff to share and work together.
