Michael Habib has updated his Academic Library 2.0 Model. This model has helped me visualize the importance of social interaction and the role that the library needs to play between students’ social needs and their academic ones. The concepts of Library 2.0 are incredibly important ones – and I think this model helps to illustrate this. I have used this model when talking about ways that the library can become a bridge to help connect students’ social and academic activities. I find that this generally makes sense to people – and helps them to accept some of the changes that really need to be made.
