23招讓你學會 2.0

在這個時候,如果圖書館的服務能應用上任何一種 Web 2.0 技術的話,都還算新穎,感覺上好像超越其他館的腳步似的。不過這種光環還需要二方面的支撐,一是讀者是否能真正的利用我們所提供的 Web 2.0 服務,另一個則是館內同仁是否也都了解並親自操作過 Web 2.0 的工具。

我認為如果有更多的館員能了解並嘗試 Web 2.0 技術/工具的使用,圖書館在邁向 Library 2.0 的步伐上可以更輕鬆,至少可以得到更多館員的支持。

其實不論是讀者或是館員,所需要的是一個有系統的學習過程,和適當的激勵。美國的 Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County (PLCMC) 便設計了一個 Learning 2.0 Project,希望能藉由此計畫鼓勵圖書館同仁去探索 Web 2.0 及一些新的技術。

Learning 2.0 Project

這項計畫是由該館的技術主管 Helene Blowers 所設計,她提出了一份 23 Learning 2.0 Things,我稱之為 “23招讓你學會 2.0″。每一週會在 部落格 上詳細說明 (文字 + podcast) 其中二、三個招式,完成所有課程 (即23課) 的人可以獲得一個 USB MP3 player,最後還有機會抽大獎 (筆記型電腦一部)。

這23招分別為:

1. Read this blog & find out about the program
2. Discover a few pointers from lifelong learners and learn how to nurture your own learning process
3. Set up your own blog & add your first post
4. Register your blog on PLCMC Central and begin your Learning 2.0 journey
5. Explore Flickr and learn about this popular image hosting site
6. Have some Flickr fun and discover some Flickr mashups & 3rd party sites
7. Create a blog post about anything technology related that interests you this week
8. Learn about RSS feeds and setup your own Bloglines newsreader account
9. Locate a few useful library related blogs and/or news feeds
10. Play around with an online image generator.
11. Take a look at LibraryThing and catalog some of your favorite books
12. Roll your own search tool with Rollyo.
13. Learn about tagging and discover a Del.icio.us (a social bookmaking site)
14. Explore Technorati and learn how tags work with blog posts.
15. Read a few perspectives on Web 2.0, Library 2.0 and the future of libraries and blog your thoughts.
16. Learn about wikis and discover some innovative ways that libraries are using them.
17. Add an entry to the Learning 2.0 SandBox wiki.
18. Take a look at some online productivity (word processing, spreadsheet) tools.
19. Explore any site from the Web 2.0 awards list, play with it and write a blog post about your findings.
20. Discover YouTube and a few sites that allow users to upload and share videos.
21. Discover some useful search tools for locating podcasts.
22. Take a look at the titles available on NetLibrary and learn how to download audiobooks.
23. Summarize your thoughts about this program on your blog.

這 23招真是面面俱到,包含了Blogging、Photos & Images、RSS & Newsreaders、Tagging, Folksonomies & Technorati、Wikis、Online Applications & Tools、Podcasts, Video & Downloadable audio。

Helene Blowers 在 IL2006 的一個場次中提到,在總數 500多位的館員中有352 人登記了此課程,共送出了 141台 141 MP3 player。她的談話內容可以參考 The Shifted Librarian 所做的記錄。

其實我覺得這些內容應不限於對館員的訓練,對讀者依然相當地有幫助。只是不論對象是誰,適度的獎勵還是必要的🙂 不曉得在台灣是否有圖書館可以有類似的計畫?
