Lib 2.0 - Introduction & Past Meetings

The revamped DH+ SIG grew out of the Lib 2.0 technologies SIG, which met 2008-2011.

The Lib2.0 group explored technologies that took advantage of the social web, but did not require coding. Lib2.0 MIssion: "The revamped Lib2.0 SIG now focuses on the awareness of and practical uses for next-generation library tools which take advantage of Web 2.0 technologies. These include social networking tools, social tagging software, digital library systems, institutional repositories, subject repositories, federated search tools, and next generation OPACS. Group membership includes any librarians and library workers who are interested in keeping up with current trends in Web 2.0 technology and its potential impact on libraries. This group welcomes members of varying levels of technological expertise and comfort levels."
