Thing #15: Web 2.0, Library 2.0 and the Future of Libraries
To me, it means getting library users to participate more in what's offered in their library and that participation driving what the library offers. Instead of building up required sections of the non-fiction section with books that never get opened, give users an easily accessed forum to offer suggestions, comment on what the library already has, tag what they find, make recommendations to other users and the librarians. With everyone participating, there is more interaction and therefore more use of the library's services and more direction on what the library should be offering.
