The Future Begins @ Your Library
Harvey, Carl A., II; Kaplan, Allison G.
Knowledge Quest, v35 n4 p16-17 Mar-Apr 2007
"Future" often conjures up something far off. Library media specialists come to realize that the future is often much closer than they think. Web 2.0 technologies have swiftly taken library media specialists into a whole new realm of possibilities. No longer consumers, they have the opportunity to become producers of information and collaborators with others in knowledge production. The authors of this article left the 2005 AASL conference in Pittsburgh refreshed and excited about the new ideas, techniques, and resources they had learned that could improve the services and instruction they provide to students and staff. In this article, the authors offer three steps to prepare the way for the next AASL conference in Reno.
