I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.
How did your attempt to familiarise your colleagues with Library 2.0 go in the end? Have there been any long-term changes since you began?
I'm just writing up my thesis on the lack of engagement of UK public libraries with Library 2.0 and would be interested to learn how things went for you.
Good point, especially since the aspects of it that interest me the most are the social aspects; group information creation,patron tagging of catalogue holdings, etc. It's such a great time to be a librarian. ;)
