Ask a Librarian - Talking to SLIS students about Web 2.0

Originally uploaded by K.Jane
I had a wonderful time this past Saturday at Dr. Linda Walling's SLIS class, Humanities Reference! There were some very interested students who voiced their opinions about Web 2.0 and asked lots of questions. This is one of my favorite library signage images I have seen in Flickr.

Here are all of the links we reviewed and discussed:

What is Web 2.0?
What do you already know?
How does it relate to humanities and research?
