John Blyberg Ann Arbor District Library http://blyberg.net/ As I’m writing this, Newsweek is running an issue about Web 2.0 entitled, “Putting the ‘We’ in WEB”.

Edward Vielmetti University of Michigan School of Information http://vielmetti.typepad.com/superpatron/ One of the popular destinations in any library that is regularly acquiring new books is the shelving where they are placed before they make their way into the stacks.

Thu, 13 Apr 2006 10:39:45 +0000

Paul Miller Talis http://blogs.talis.com/panlibus/ In illustrating the potential for Library 2.0, commentators tend to point to the exemplary work of a small number of individuals; John Blyberg, Ed Vielmetti, Casey Bisson, Dave Pattern, to name but four.
