Making Connections – OpenLibrary2.0

April 29, 2008

OpenLibrary 2.0 is the new library web-site. Gill Gravestock She noted that there are 10 times as many users of the website compared to the physical library. Hit by some demo gremlins but drew on good knowledge of what people want – such as direct access to OU library information vi Google scholar. I had noticed this happening for me, so I know this is real even if the demo didn’t pay off. The “2.0” title in this case probably focuses on the willingness to go beyond OU provided systems and work with the world, rather than links between people – though that is in the pipeline.
