Library 2.0: An Academic's Perspective: What They Should Teach in Library School

Library 2.0: An Academic’s Perspective: What They Should Teach in Library School:
How are graduate schools of library and information science preparing students for Library 2.0? I’ve got a few suggestions.

These suggestions are along the lines of what I’ll call foundation skills that can prepare students for working in a Library 2.0 world. In other words, I’m not getting into lists of Library 2.0 phenomena that should be covered in school, e.g., blogs, wikis, social networks, RSS and all that. These are a given. I’m more interested in skills that are necessary for working successfully with these phenomena.


I teach some of this, but not all of it. I think that I will add teach colleagues in my next class.
