LFN Study Day Web 2.0 ~ what it can do
for you?

On a bright, clear November morning, at the RCN HQ in
London, the 2009 LFN Study Day got off to a good start with an
unexpectedly humorous look at the increasing up take of web
2.0 applications in the realm of information delivery, by Peter
Godwin of University of Bedfordshire.

             Peter Godwin: University of Bedfordshire
Web 2.0 – where next? An overview of the past 3 years, and
                        a glimpse into the future.

  “The walls of the library have gone, but the library hasn’t, it’s
                       now where you want it to be”.

Using this statement as a starting point, Peter gave a contextual
overview of the advent of web 2.0, its recent
developments/challenges, and its impact on learning
environments, and what it means to us, the librarians, before
considering the potential of future developments.
