it’s all about the basicsPosted: January 4, 2010
I spent a good deal of today looking over articles on Web 2.0 and user generated content. I’m beginning to think my book will take on a slightly different direction. While I was going to describe the gamut of Web 2.0 tools that libraries and general end-users are now employing, I now think I will focus solely on ten (or so) user generated content venues. First I plan to describe them (individually). The description will include my experience/experiments with each. Then, each chapter will go into how libraries may want to permit that type of user generated content on their own sites — or how they might account for it. For example, if the venue is citizen journalism, how will libraries offer indexing of those sites to help people who are looking for comprehensive news (not just the legacy sources).
