BOOKCAMP SESSION: Reading and 2.0 tools. The experience of Biblioteques de Barcelona

This session aims to offer a broad vision of the main activities that Biblioteques de Barcelona has carried out with regards reading and 2.0 tools.


The arrival of social networks and new digital reading supports pose new challenges for public libraries. Should they offer new services based on the demand for technology already in the hands of library users or should they foresee future needs? These are two objectives of Biblioteques de Barcelona; objectives that shape the work behind the development of new social interaction tools between users and libraries and new ways of approaching the dissemination of the reading exercise.

How to unite reading and the 2.0 tools? How to cater for e-readers in the public library? How to facilitate the interaction of library users with the bibliographic catalogue? How to make recommendations on reading through a blog? How to join the social networks?
