Laura’s Final Project Ideas

October 5, 2011

Hello all,

Still trying to refine and finalize, but my initial idea is to delve into the web 2.0 tools currently used by libraries and the future trends that are coming in that arena. My website would be a rundown of the applications available, their uses in libraries, resources related to these tools and a summary of library 2.0 and beyond. That’s how I’m leaning now, definitely subject to change. I welcome suggestions and input!

    I was totally going to do this also, mainly because I did a project about it last semester and I have tons of material on the subject already. Maybe there’s a particular area you want to focus on? I was thinking of looking at libraries using social networks as a platform for community outreach. Did you have any ideas on where you wanted to go with your subject?

    Yes, there seems to be technologies within the library to improve resource sharing and suggestions (folksonomy, book reviews) and technologies that reach out from the library (blogs, Facebook). I haven’t seen much info on return on investment (both time and money). What is worth a librarian’s effort?

    This is a great topic and (re: Fawn) there’s no requirement for a topic/subject be unique to the student.
