Academic library 2.0 concept model

"One approach to adapting Web 2.0 technologies to academic library services is to examine how these technologies already fit into student life and then determine the library’s role in this picture. [This model] introduces one conceptual framework that applies this method. This model analyzes the libraries' position as a physical place in student life and then draws parallels with libraries' possible position as a virtual place. The model is based on the concept that most of student life is divided between the social and the academic and that physical libraries have traditionally provided a unique location that mixes the two."
