This piece is mostly a list of some Web 2.0 tools with some suggestions and tips on how they can be used for library instruction. If you are a pretty savvy librarian who knows how to use the major 2.0 tools, you can probably safely skim the article. There are some basic tips that can be useful, which include:
- Using Delicious (http://delicious.com) and tagging to highlight issues with the concept of tagging versus a controlled vocabulary. (116).
- Using Google Reader (http://www.google.com/reader) to organize and track information. I use Google Reader quite a bit for my current awareness needs.
- Using Creative Commons, both for finding content that may be used freely and for your own material. My blogs are licensed with Creative Commons, by the way.
