Try to sum up the first day (3/23, Wed.) of the CIL06 Conference. Very exciting, learned many tips and tricks, attended some wonderful programs that are truly inspiring and informative.

“Librarian 1.0” vs “Librarian 2.0”? This is the focus of the Wednesday evening session (7:30-9pm) “Digi TechForum: Looking at Dead & Emerging Technologies”.

library OPAC (1.0), WPopac at the Plymouth State Univ. Library (so 2.0) (very cool, check it out, a WordPress library OPAC!)
Bloglines to track your Fedex RSS feed (so 1.0), isnoop.net/tracking (2.0)
SPOT watches (1.0), Bluetooth watches (so 2.0)
Skype (so 1.0), Yahoo Messenger (2.0)
… …
static Web pages (so 1.0), dynamic Web pages (2.0)
MS Office (so 1.0), Google Office/Writely (2.0)
HTML (1.0), XML/RSS (2.0)
traditional subject guides (1.0), subject wikis (2.0)
… …

Darlene Fichter summed up “librarian 2.0” very well:

book stuff + people + radical trust + participation
