Library 2.0 and beyond….

‘This is a blog about Library 2.0. Meaning:  developments in new internet technologies that are of importance to libraries.’ That was the original introduction to this blog. In January 2015 I got rid of the “Library 2.0” buzzword and replaced it with “Data. The final frontier”. Because that’s exactly what it should be all about in libraries.
