Item 16

OK the Wiki is very cool. There are times that I do use wikipedia to look things up, even though I know that some of the things may be made up. As I read on to find out more I found that this is one more thing that I have to sign up for then I found the sandbox. I signed up and began to edited what was already there. What fun. It's like an on going play place.

Item # 15 Library 2.0

"Library 2.0 is a new way of providing library service through new Internet technologies." Quote, unquote, but the service of the 2.0 is not for the inexperienced Internet surfer. I'm afraid that in todays world people want things fast and I found that there is a lot of reading in the 2.0 and it still doesn't tell me how it helps. It says that library 2.0 is, "helping users find information, gather knowledge and create content." What happened to checking out a book and just reading it?
With Internet techologies ever changing how can we keep up? I just got a new app. for my iphone and with that app. I was able to put in my library card number and with the help of the librarian we were able to scan the bar code on the phone and bring up my record to allow me to check out a book. All the information in one place.
