Thanks Rajendra for your inputs. To add on to our discussion, after the blogs are implemented, can be blogs be classfied? Initially they may be generic. Can they be arranged subjectwise and in sencond level datewise

Web 2.0 is just present generation web technology online/real time interactive, point to point, same thing what a librarian do a customer service at lib counter in physical presence with one to one contact with reader, similar happening can be through library website through Library 2.0.

Madhavi -

Just by being here and having this conversation, you already have a good chunk of the basics.

From Wikipedia: "Web 2.0 is a term describing changing trends in the use of World Wide Web technology and web design that aims to enhance creativity, information sharing, collaboration and functionality of the web. Web 2.0 concepts have led to the development and evolution of web-based communities and its hosted services, such as social-networking sites, video sharing sites, wikis, blogs, and folksonomies."

So Wikipedia itself is an example, as is this Ning group, Flickr, YouTube, LibraryThing, Blogger,, etc. The best way to learn them is to play with them, read library blogs and leave comments.

FWIW, I have a bunch of posts about 2.0 on my blog:

Web 2.0 is the interactive web -- not just websites delivering information to passive recipients, but allowing for collaborative computing. Library 2.0 is the application of Web 2.0 to library services, including blogs allowing patron comments, catalog records where users can rate and review items, YouTube videos & Flickr photos where patrons can participate. Widespread library staff involvement -- so that library websites are not just static pages created by webmasters -- opens up service delivery, communication, and opportunities for creativity.
