Samuel Lazerow Memorial Lecture:

Are We Ready For Massive Library Innovation?

Speaker: Stephen Abram, VP Innovation, SirsiDynix

There is a global conversation going on right now about the next generation of the web. It's happening under the series title "Web 2.0". It's the McLuhanesque hot web where true human interaction takes precedence over merely `cool' information delivery and e-mail. It's about putting information into the real context of our users' lives, work and play. It's about truly understanding user needs. What does Library 2.0 look like in this Web 2.0 ecosystem? In a world of MySpace, Facebook, Virtual Worlds and Second Life and a world with user-driven tools like, Flickr, Blogger, LibraryThing, and Pandora - what are the competencies needed by Librarian 2.0 to sustain relevance? Come and hear Stephen Abram's highlights to spark this discussion further.
