As an IFLA 2.0 enthusiast, I’ve collected sixteen examples from the IFLA corner of the world:
- There are lots of nice pictures from IFLA at the organization’s flickr account
- IFLA President Ingrid Parent and President-Elect Sinikka Sipilä have just started to Twitter
- Fiona Bradley at IFLA HQ reports from the BSLA project in Semantic Library (blog). She started blogging in 1999 …
- At this year’s IFLACamp in Hämeenlinna all tweets were projected on the big screen in the main meeting room
- The flickr pix are not CC, however – so they can not be reused by the IFLA community without applying for and being granted permission …
- The recent history of the New Professionals SIG is documented at LIS Traveler, Sebastian Wilke’s blog. In German.
- The IFLA blog platform has not established itself as a blog community: low frequency of posting and very little discussion
- The President-Elect’s Planning Session was livestreamed – and took place at smaller tables (to encourage dialogue)
- This year’s IFLA Express had its main articles in the middle of the web page – and open (non-edited) RSS streams on both sides: blogs to the left and tweets to the right.
- Comment buttons (and hashtags) encourage discussion – as the interview with Ann Okerson shows.
- All tweets with the hashtags #wlic2012 and #iflacamp have now been archived for posterity – by the New Professionals …
- The IFLA World Report has a nice map-based interface
- The current design of the IFLA Web Site has improved, but remains rather staid (“square”, old-fashioned)
- The Statistics for Advocacy project has been documented through more than sixty posts – some in Spanish
- The hashtag #stronglibraries made it easy to follow – and to participate – in the discussion
- The communications working group from Section 4 will be chatting at #ifladial …
