When a lot of people hear “3.0″ they immediately think “technology,” but really, where are we NOT thinking of technology these days?
However, the X.0 concept really just means “next generation.” What are our next gen users going to want? Expect? Find archaic? This is ultimately what Libraries 3.0 is attempting to get us to think about.
Anyone remember the conventional wisdom “Teens will only read paperbacks?” If you were still following that maxim, you wouldn’t have gotten New Moon in your collection til last summer. Or graphic novel collections that assumed all graphic novels were for teen collections? What are some outdated ideas that we might be holding onto RIGHT NOW just waiting for us to think our way through and overthrow?
