An interesting video from Aarhus Public Libraries in Denmark is a good example of how ‘library 2.0’ can be seen as being about more than just the technology. Here the Aarhus Main Library’s focus is on involving the users in order to cater to their needs; user collaboration and participatory design in libraries is encouraged.
From the video: “In the new library, user-driven innovation will be part of the daily work. The user’s needs are in focus.”
