2.0 for Readers
Wyatt, Neal
Library Journal, v132 n18 p30-33 Nov 2007
The world of readers' advisory (RA) is embracing many of the tools that collectively are referred to as Library 2.0. RA has long shared many of the beliefs supported by Library 2.0--well before there even was such a thing--including conversations with readers, valuing and empowering the experience of the reader, and near constant reevaluation of RA services. Nowhere is this more evident than in the rebirth and adaptation of the annotation--a tool to help librarians remember books in an RA context. For years RA librarians have either kept some type of annotation on books they have read or felt guilty that they have not. Now, with online tools and upgrades to library catalogs, many RA librarians are ditching the guilt in favor of a new method of creating annotations--and are discovering an increasingly collaborative RA community as they enable a new wave of user-created content.
