Implementation as Ongoing and Incremental: Case Study of Web 2.0 Use for Staff Communication

Implementation as Ongoing and Incremental: Case Study of Web 2.0 Use for Staff Communication Web 2.0 implementations in academic libraries tend to concentrate on rolling out a functioning system first and training of personnel second. This article offers a case analysis documenting one approach to implementation, whereby a Web site slowly integrates Web 2.0 technologies in a just-in-time orientation and the impact on improving staff communication and cultivating community awareness for a small academic library. Findings underscore the need to reexamine the implementation process as a continuous, adaptive, and nondemanding engagement with colleagues and staff based on active awareness of developments and needs. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal Of Access Services Taylor & Francis

Abstract

Web 2.0 implementations in academic libraries tend to concentrate on rolling out a functioning system first and training of personnel second. This article offers a case analysis documenting one approach to implementation, whereby a Web site slowly integrates Web 2.0 technologies in a just-in-time orientation and the impact on improving staff communication and cultivating community awareness for a small academic library. Findings underscore the need to reexamine the implementation process as a continuous, adaptive, and nondemanding engagement with colleagues and staff based on active awareness of developments and needs.
