"Editor Courtney has pulled together the best and the brightest who write and practice Web 2.0 to author chapters on next-generation online tools. This text is not a how-to on Web 2.0; rather, each chapter simply explains an online tool, and how it is being used today, using a few superb library examples (ranging from public to academic), and then discusses future possibilities. The suggested readings exemplify the notion of Web 2.0 and publishing, as the recommendations are well balanced between journal articles and freely accessible blog entries. This is a must-have to any library wanting to stay relevant in today's ever-changing and challenging environment." - Booklist description.
