Library 2.0 at IFLA

The World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) of IFLA starts soon and this year library 2.0 will be a theme in different panels. If you are in Durban and interested in library 2.0, here is a guide where it would properly interesting to go. (And also there is a good chance to meet met me there.)

It’s start on Sunday afternoon (13.45-15.45) in the panel about „Quality Issues in Libraries“ with the theme „The new entrance to the library: effectiveness and use of the library web-site“ where Peter Giger and Eva Norling (Blekinge Institute of Technology, Karlskrona, Sweden) speak about „Library participation cultures“.

On Tuesday morning (10.45 – 12.45) you can meet me at the common panel of the sections National Libraries , ICABS and Information Technology with my presentation „Libraries 2.0 and user-generated content: what can the users do for us?“. Later at the day (16:00-18.00) Stephen Abraham, President-Elect of the SLA and from SirsiDynix will talk about „The Social Library: The 2.0 Phenomenon and KM – Collaboration, Cooperation, Sharing, Storytelling, Networking.“ The last talk about library 2.0 on this day will come from Mary M. Somerville about „Participatory Co-Design: A Relationship Building. Approach for Co-Creating Libraries of the Future“.

On Wednesday the interesting part starts early (08.30-10.30) in the panel of Academic and Research Libraries about „Information Literacy“ with the talk from Betty Braaksma, Kathy Drewes, George Siemens and Peter Tittenberger (University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada) about „Building a Virtual Learning Commons: What do YOU want to do? “ and after that a speech about „Second Life Machinima for Libraries: the intersection of instruction, outreach and marketing in a virtual world“ from Bernadette Daly Swanson (University of California, Davis, USA). The second part of the panel is in the second slot of the day (10.45-12.45) and will contain the talk „Podcasting for Information Literacy“ from Regina Lee Roberts (Stanford University, Stanford, USA)

The big finish of the day(16.00-18.00) will be the panel of the Information Technology Section with the theme „Second Life for libraries: Let’s give users what they want: user driven library services“ I’m looking forward to the talks of David K. Karnes, Francis Lajba and Stephen R. Shorb (University of Nebraska, Omaha, USA) about „Technology for providing materials in 94 world languages: a partnership for user-driven learning, and improved awareness of the people and events that shape our world“ and Heila Pienaar and Ina Smith (University of Pretoria, Pretoria, South Africa) about „Development of a Library 2.0 service model for an African library„. Also Catherine Lupovici (Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris, France) about „Gallica 2.0: a second life for the BnF digital library“.

At Thursday morning (08.30-10.30) will be the session of the IFLA-CDNL Alliance for Bibliographic Standards (ICABS) with the theme that direct points to the web 2.0:“Libraries contributing to web 2.0″: Renate Gömpel (Deutsche Nationalbibliothek, Frankfurt am Main, Germany) held a talk with the title „Don’t turn off the lights, yet!“ and Barbara B. Tillett and Corey Harper (Library of Congress, Washington, USA) talk about VIAF in“ Library of Congress controlled vocabularies, the Virtual International Authority File, and their application to the Semantic Web“. I really hope they present an open API for VIAF :-).

Also in the morning (08.30-10.30) in the session of Reference and Information Services about Getting and keeping ahead: educating for reference and information services for the future“ will be a talk from Grace Saw and Heather Todd (University of Queensland Library, Brisbane, Australia) about „Library 3.0: where art our skills?“.

After that (10.45-12.45) Social tagging is also a theme at WLIC in the session of Classification and Indexing which have the motto „Partners for subject access to bring libraries and users together“. Jonathan Furner (University of California, Los Angeles, USA) talks about „User tagging of library resources: Toward a framework for system evaluation“ and Sarah Hayman (education.au, Adelaide, Australia) and Nick Lothian (education.au, Adelaide, Australia) about „Taxonomy Directed Folksonomy: integrating user tagging and controlled vocabularies for Australian education networks„.

Also there will be two interesting poster presentations „Libraries and the Social Web: Using Web 2.0 Applications to Deliver Information in the 21st Century“ from Jennifer Lang and my poster „The German-Languages Wikisource Project: Digitalisation 2.0“.

Now I know for sure, that W-LAN access is at the conference is , I will blog from some panels and I will try to use the tips of Ethan Zuckerman about Conference blogging. (Thank you to Ben for hint.)
