Library 2.0 and User-Generated Content: What can the users do for us? is a 2007 conference paper written in English by Patrick Danowski and published in World Library and Information Congress: 73rd IFLA General Conference and Council.

[edit] Abstract

Library 2.0 and user-generated content are two terms, which are closely connected. In the presentation, I will briefly define both terms. Two example projects where user- generated content and libraries interact will be presented. The cooperation of Wikipedia and the Personennamendatei, the German cooperative name authority files is the first. The second will be Wikisource where users provide transcribed source material. Another important area of user-generated content is social tagging where users index different resources. And if the users will do so much in the future, is there still a place for librarians? But in the future user and librarians become partners and the library will provide the platform: the library 2.0.
