  1. Thanks for including my post! That’s very flattering. Except…my name’s not Jason Griffey.

  2. Jennifer says:

    Joshua, thanks for point that out. That is what I get for cutting and pasting in WordPress’s text editor (which combined with my very tired brain cells isn’t the best for putting these types of posts together). I have corrected the error!!!!

  3. rochelle says:

    Phenomenal resource, Jennifer!

  4. bonaria says:

    Hi! thank u for including my post in you useful list!

  5. You might consider adding Cites & Insights 6:2 (Library 2.0 and “Library 2.0”),, and possibly the followup “Finding a Balance, Libraries and Librarians” (–but since the first is already cited within a couple of the items you do include, you could also make a case for not providing the direct reference.

  6. Oops. The first link is incomplete: it needs to be
    Sorry about that–and thanks for adding the articles!

  7. Jennifer says:

    Hi Walt! Thanks for the links. Both articles were on my list of resources to add to this post. Finding a Balance, Libraries and Librarians is one of my favorite articles from Cites and Insights (and one that I have read several times over). I have to say that as the list stand it only has about half of my compiled resources. Like many students, I have many incomplete references – and need to track down the correct references before I add the item. I owe you a big thanks for providing the citation information for me for your articles – it made adding them much easier. With school/work/life, I can only add so many links at a time – and I can admit to feeling a little bit tired of citations (I’m seeing them in my sleep right about now!!!!).

  8. You’re welcome. It’s an interesting/impressive list (with some resources I hadn’t seen). And, of course, thanks for the kind words on Finding a Balance. That theme, certainly not limited to Library 2.0 (or copyright, where I’d used it in a previous issue), is becoming one of my Big Ongoing Things…

  9. Jennifer, I’m retrofitting a talk I gave in South Africa earlier this month to add this as a key citation. It’s an excellent list.

  10. Jennifer says:

    I’m glad that people are finding the list useful – that makes all of the work worth it!!!

  11. […] Life as I know it上列出了一个长长的Library 2.0 Roundup。值得一览。可惜Wordpress站点被GWFed了,没办法,为了方便只好存了个mht在自己的googlepages里,通过这里可以方便地访问其中罗列的链接了。点击这个Library 2.0 Roundup即可。 Comments » […]

  12. Brian Gray says:

    Thank you for including my presentation.

    I need to go through your list to make sure I am aware of all these wonderful resources.

  13. Great post Jennifer, lots of really focused resources on L2. If you do any additions, please keep InfoTangle in mind! Ellyssa

    Wikipedia is the key to most success online, when it comes to collabritive content adding. I have spent many hours writing articles for Jimmy Wales and am very happy with this project. I am based in Seminole FL close to the wikipedia offices in St Petersburg. I love contributing!

    Happy New Year Bloggers!
