“We do have a digital technologies librarian in the RIS who coordinates some of these activities and develops
Web 2.0 technology tools.”
“We have active participation in social software initiatives across the organization. Library Instruction
Services, Reference and Information Services, and other units are very active with our Technology Integration
Services team, pushing these initiatives forward. Our library catalog interface team is also very active. Most
ideas bubble up from staff. The administration is very supportive of these efforts.”
“Still primarily in an experimental stage staff in the New Media Office are working to identify the tools to use
and encouraging all library staff to explore and start working with new tools that can be brought into the fold
of potential tools.”
