Library 2.0 environment in South Korea

Dear All,

As I have mentioned earlier, South Korea has a well developed library system. At the same time, they are well aware about the changing environment in the field of library and information science, and always try to keep the library community in the country aware regarding these changes. Also they are keen in finding solutions and developing strategies to address those changes.

Accordingly, the "The Library 2.0 Technical Seminar" was held today at the COEX Mall located in the Gangnam-Gu, Seoul with the participation of around 100 library professionals. Some interesting papers were presented and some of them are as follows:

  • Evolution of Library 2.0: semantic and the Library
  • Semantic Technology and the Future of the Library
  • PYXIS: Library 2.0 portal for a successful library service
  • Social Semantic Digital Library
  • Digital Library improved by SOLARS DLi II

Among them, there were some case studies which describes how the Library 2.0 concept has been adapted and will be adapted in library services in Korea.

It was an useful and interesting session.

If you need more information pls. do not hesitate to contact me.

With Best Regards,

Tharanga Ranasinghe (from Seoul)
