Very pretty – so where do the Web 1.0 (and 0.0) users fit into all this then? A lot of my experiences and research into users indicates that rather than a raising of the skills threshold there’s actually more of a smearing across the whole gaumet from “none” to “exceptional”. Trying to offer anything like service level parity to them all is a major nightmare (erm, “challenge”).
And do we librarians need to be physically co-located in the library or should we be “everwhere”. I rather like the idea of being omnipresent though, being omniscient already naturally…
The library may not (yet) be all those things, but aren’t we? OK it is Friday.
RSS for catalogue is interesting, I’ve managed to get new books on keywords picked up in the past into a trial blog… Easy to create feeds would be fun – would help us to promote material alot. A question for Janet?
