The Future of Libraries

I decided to research the subject of Library 2.0 and read "Do Libraries Matter? The Rise of Library 2.0; a white paper by Ken Chad and Paul Miller. You can read it if you go to: http://www.techsource.ala.org/blog/blog_detail.php?blog_id=95

Technology is advancing in giant steps and people looking for information no longer have to go to a library. Internet-based services such as Amazon and google offer information which people can access from anywhere. So how can a library compete with these technology giants in the future and survive? One of the ways Libraries can stay up to date is to be linked to the Web 2.0 applications. Web 2.0 brings us online resources such as Flickr, Google, Amazon, RSS, etc... In doing so, the Library can also become a preferred destination.
