Adoption of Web 2.0 by Libraries: Pivot Points of Change

It's fine to learn all you can about the new technologies, but the challenge is figuring out how to practically implement them into your work, and how to adapt to the change. I like this presentation by Buffy Hamilton, High School Media Specialist at Creekview High School in Canton, GA she will be giving this week to the Georgia Public Library All-Staff Meeting.

I like that this is a fresh look at the technology, helping to make it accessible. She comforts us by letting us know that we do not have to change everything, but gives ideas on how to gradually change up what we are doing.

See also her blog post Pivot Points for Change and her wiki-licious resources page to accompany the presentation.

Updated: and this is the blog post she says started it all. Enjoy!
