ISS library explores web2

In October and December 2007, Euforic introduced the basics of the 'new' web to library staff of ISS, in The Hague.

The objective was to 'expose' people working in the Library services to the new web, in particular making them familiar with newsfeeds to 'read' the web; sharing and archiving interesting links using social bookmarking applications; uploading content by publishing news in a blog, and working together on a wiki.

Participants enjoyed the different tools presented, and showed a genuine interest in the potentialities that these can open to ISS in making its services a 2.0 library.
