Intranet 2.0

This is a follow-up to yesterday's post More on Government 2.0 and on Government Library 2.0.

On Stephen's Lighthouse, the blog of SirsiDynix VP of Innovation Stephen Abram, there was an item last week about Preparing for Intranet 2.0: how to integrate new communication technology into your intranet.

"Sometimes special librarians feel more insulated from some of the Web 2.0 trends as their environment can be very controlled by IT or coporate policies. I am at the SLA Conference in Baltimore until Wednesday and this is on my mind. Lo and behold this report comes over my aggregator... It's a great place to start to understand 2.0 concepts in the Intranet environment".

The report referred to explains how "(N)ew communication technology is making it [the enterprise Intranet] less a one-way publishing vehicle and more a platform for two-way communication, collaboration and innovation. In this chapter, we discuss these new technologies – from RSS, to wikis to blogs – and whether you should integrate them into your intranet".

At the Supreme Court of Canada Library, we will be exploring the use of wikis and RSS feeds as part of our 2006-7 business plan.
