As conferências de biblitecários já não são o que eram

By | 7 de Junho de 2006

Que dizer duma conferência que a certo ponto do programa contem uma “Open Source Software Installfest” de 8 horas. E não é instalar umas coisas leves, tipo msn, ou firefox. É:

  • Koha, an ILS;
  • OpenILL, an interlibrary loan system;
  • Jybe, virtual reference;
  • GreenStone, digital collection and institutional respository development;
  • and WordPress, a blogging tool.

Mas não é por isso que quero ir. É porque das 10:30 em diante ( sem hora para terminar ) Stephen Abram vai discorrer sobre “Web 2.0 and the Library 2.0 in Our Future” nos seguintes termos:

There is a global conversation going on right now about the next generation of the web. It’s happening under the name of Web 2.0. It’s the McLuhanesque hot web, where true human interaction takes precedence over merely “cool” information delivery and e-mail. It’s about putting information into the real context of our users’ lives, work, and play. Concurrently, a group of information professionals are having a conversation about the vision for what Library 2.0 will look like in this Web 2.0 ecosystem. Some are even going so far as to talk about Web 3.0! Web 2.0 is coming fast and it’s BIG! What are the skills and competencies that Librarian 2.0 will need? MySpace and Facebook are just the tip of the iceberg! Come and hear an overview of Web 2.0 and a draft vision for Library 2.0, and an opinion about what adaptations we’ll need to make to thrive in this future scenario.

Noto que o faz, nesta altura, já como presidente em exercício da SLA!
