Web 2.0 and Library Collaborative Work
Hi Web 2.0 and Librarianship participants,
Please give me productive views about how best we can use the skills to make collaborative work in Libraries in Papua New Guinea especilly in the workplace.
Thank you for your productive comments.

I think with the new trend in IT, web 2.0 would be more effective and useful in academic libraries in bringing information to students in different locations in the world.. there are some libraries who do not have certain recommended text books, and by using this method, i think we would be able to help our students in one way or the other
I agree with Arabai's insight on how Web 2.0 can contribute to the needs of the students where ever they. I would also like to add that web 2.0 is a very powerful resource in information and that people who use it can do many wonders with it. For example, if i am doing a paper on environmental conservation and I need vital information, I can look up a chat group on my particular topic and discuss it with other people in that field or profession.
I think collaborative work using wikis as a medium of sharing information would be very useful for small libraries with limited funding and scarce resources to benefit from bigger libraries.
We have different work environments. For my case I keep information needed by lawyers and researchers.
In any case as information keepers we need to share with our users. this
This is very helpful in teaching and learning, I also beleive it will greatly assist govt libraries in information sharing.
