The vision to create School Libraries 2.0 draws upon ideas from Web 2.0 and

Library 2.0. Based on a definition developed at the SLJ Library Leadership Summit in 2006, School Library 2.0 is about creating a participatory, social, user-centered environment rich with technology that is focused on interactivity and collaboration. This transformation must be based on one primary goal - student success.

1. School Library 2.0: Say good-by to your mother’s library
“Redefining the school library is not a response to some inherent failure on the part of the institution. It’s an opportunity for library professionals to engage in some exciting activities that will enable our institutions to remain effective in the midst of fast-moving technological change. It was school libraries, in fact, that led the way in the first wave that brought computers and then the Internet into our classrooms. This is about adapting, once again, to a new, perhaps even more compelling digital revolution, in which powerful new ideas are enhancing the way in which we function in an electronic information environment.”
