Abstract

In this presentation Edward Corrado and Jim Robertson will discuss social software and what implications it has for libraries. Clay Shirky, who is largely credited with creating the term defines social software as software that supports group interaction. Some examples of social software include instant messaging, RSS, blogs, wikis, folksonomies (tagging), photo sharing, social bookmarking, and more. The presentation will start with an overview of some of these social software technologies and there applications in libraries will be provided. After the overview Corrado and Robertson will discuss the current and future implications of social software for librarians, library systems, and libraries in general.
