Over the last few years, many libraries have eagerly embraced Web 2.0 technologies--blogs, wikis, and social engagement with patrons have become commonplace. This approach to the Web can no longer be considered new and cutting-edge. Change on the Web move along at a fast pace. It's time to consider what comes next. Breeding will give his view of how libraries can take Web 2.0 technologies to the next level and integrate them into their core automation infrastructure to better support their strategic missions. Today's Web 2.0 technologies have been implemented mostly through informal processes. As the Web 2.0-inspired technologies mature, they need to become more central to a library's strategic mission and become integrated into its fundamental infrastructure. Tune in for Marshall Breeding's view of life beyond Web 2.0.
