Welcome to Library 2.0!

Library 2.0 was started in 2007 by Bill Drew as one of the first modern social networks for librarians and educators. He passed the torch to Steve Hargadon in 2010 with an amazing 4,500 members, and Steve brought it into his Learning Revolution family of educational networks and online events.

In the fall of 2011 Steve and Library 2.0 started a partnership with Dr. Sandra Hirsh and (what is now) the The School of Information at San José State University to hold large-scale, free, online conference events for the library community at large, branded with the year and playing on the 2.0 theme--the first one being "Library 2.011." This successful partnership has continued to this day, transitioning from one annual two-day event to the current format of three three-hour online (and still free) topic-specific mini-conferences a year, each of which typically draws over 5,000 registrations by itself. Along with the TeacherLibrarian.org network and past event registrants, Library 2.0 now reaches a total audience of over 50,000 from 175 countries.

In late 2018, Steve also started a separate Library 2.0 paid Webinar series, and more information about those Webinars can be found below.

One of the Hardest Patron Conversations For a Library Supervisor to Have? Preparing For the “Hygiene Talk”

So a patron has – for whatever reason and there can be many – a significant body odor, dental odor, or other hygiene problem. This is not a patron who rode his or her bike to your library and didn’t towel off properly; this is a person who we can all smell from several feet away. It could be a combination of body odor, mouth odor, a personal toiletry problem, and/or unclean clothes (wearing the same unwashed garments day after day). Either way, this a library workplace issue, which can really start to bother the staff who have to serve or work near this person. It demands a “patron coaching” conversation.

Library 2.016: LIBRARIES OF THE FUTURE was held on October 6th, 2016. As libraries shape their futures – and adapt to the future needs of their communities – what are the near- and long-term trends that point to our brightest opportunities? What can we learn from library innovators and innovators from other sectors and industries that will help us shape the future we want and that our communities aspire towards?

We explored some of the key trends that point toward specific futures for libraries, and engage in conversations with civic, social, and education innovators to learn more about what they think about the future, and how libraries can become an integral part of their future visions. Libraries and librarians are well-positioned to envision the future – at the intersection of information, education, technology, and community – and this dialogue will help bring our best thinking together with the exciting visions of our collaborators, allies, and partners. Sponsored with ALA’s Center for the Future of Libraries.

Library 2.016: LIBRARY AS CLASSROOM was held on June 15th, 2016. In A New Culture of Learning, authors Douglas Thomas and John Seely Brown write, “Where imaginations play, learning happens.” This could and should define our services for now and in the future. The library as creative classroom means we approach the learning opportunities we create with thought, user-directed planning, and insights from research. This classroom may include physical spaces for instruction and discovery as well as online, multi-scale platforms aimed at social learning and participation.

Libraries of all kinds serve as formal and informal creative classrooms, supporting learners by employing emerging strategies in learning and engagement. These include: play, collaborative exploration of ideas and technologies, and other innovations. There are notable examples of academic, public, and K-12 library spaces that have become creative classrooms. These feature community learning spaces to help learners achieve, game-focused initiatives that make the library a laboratory for exploration, creation zones with requisite digital and 3-D hardware for building things, and potentially endless opportunities to connect virtually with people worldwide.

The library as classroom requires inspired and insightful management that can do those things and more. The library as classroom also requires well-trained, user-focused staff who understand how people of all ages can learn socially. Art programs, DIY tinkering, locally sourced expert forums, and LOOCs (local open online courses) are all part of this ­curriculum.

Library 2.016: PRIVACY IN THE DIGITAL AGE was held on March 16th, 2016. What are the roles and responsibilities of libraries regarding the protections of intellectual freedom, privacy, free speech, information access, and freedom of the press? Are these still core values of the library profession, and if so, how are libraries and librarians responding to the increasing complexities of data tracking and desires for data-informed services and marketing?

In this focused conversation on privacy, we planned on hearing from a variety of library professionals as well as keynote Speakers: Lee Rainie; Director, Internet, Science, and Technology Research; Pew Research Center; Jamie Larue, Director, Office for Intellectual Freedom, American Library Association; Jonathan Hernández, Associate Researcher, Library and Information Institute, National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM); Deborah Caldwell-Stone, Deputy Director, Office for Intellectual Freedom, American Library Association; and Alison Macrina, Director, Library Freedom Project.
