Web 2.0 - Implications for IT Services
Marieke Guy, UKOLN
The Web is changing. It is no longer a phenomenon but has integrated itself within our culture. However for those creating Web services times are far from stable. A wide range of Web-based applications continue to be developed, such as blogs, wikis, podcasting, social networking software, RSS feeds etc. The Semantic Web is still on the cards and now we have Web 2.0, an opportunity for a more sharing, more participative Web? Is it just hype? Will these progressions make any difference to the way in which we go about our work?
In this session Marieke Guy will give an outline of emerging Web developments and discuss the implications for University IT services.
Marieke Guy is a researcher for UKOLN, a centre of expertise in digital information management, based at the University of Bath, England. She is currently a member of the Interoperability Focus team which publicises and mobilises the benefits and practice of effective interoperability across the library, information, education and cultural heritage communities.
