A Directory for Library 2.0 Resources!

Here’s a peek at the new “Library 2.0 Directory” on LibraryCurrents.com!



One of the self-initiated projects that i have wanted to do since taking my LIBR 210 Reference Services course was to create a Library 2.0 directory, a database of web 2.0 resources that library professionals could refer to for the latest in library technologies and innovation. After installing the Business Directory plugin, I added several dozen resources into the directory. But which resources were on my initial list to choose from?

I decided that I would start off by creating listings for all of the important technologies, tools, websites, blogs, and other resources that I have already written about in previous blog posts. It makes sense, because these resources have already been covered and adding them to the directory is complementary to the blog. In the future, each major library 2.0 resource covered in a blog posting will be included in the resource directory as a separate listing.

This will lead to a continuously updated resource directory that users can refer to. Users will also know when browsing the directory that the resource has previously been blogged about.

There are still a number of blog posts to comb through in order to bring the resource directory listings current, but I plan to have them all in by the end of the semester. I’m really excited about pairing a database to content like this!
