Makin' Stories: From New York to Monterey and Now to D.C., Dutch Crew Documents Best "2.0" Practices in U.S. Libraries
Computers in Libraries, v28 n3 p12-15 Mar 2008
Jaap van de Geer, Erik Boekesteijn, Michael Stephens, and Geert van den Boogaard toured the U.S. last fall and interviewed librarians about how they are revitalizing their libraries. These four Dutch men are representatives of the Delft (the Netherlands) Public Library Concept Center and they came to the U.S. for their "Shanachie Tour." Their trip took them 5,000 miles up, down, and across the United States, documenting what libraries are doing with Web. 2.0 technologies. In the process of touring the nation, they also managed in their video footage to capture a portrait of the United States. This article provides highlights of their tour.
