The Yale Information Society Project (ISP) hosted the Library 2.0 Symposium on Saturday, April 4, 2009, at Yale Law School. The symposium was especially timely as the confluence of book digitization projects, user-generated content, and social networking applications forces us to rethink the role of libraries. Among the topics that were considered: What counts as a library in the 21st century? And how do digital collections and web 2.0 applications create new challenges to copyright, fair use, and civil liberties online?

Library 2.0 Panel 1, Part 1 includes a opening comments from Blair Kauffman, panelists Joshua Greenberg, Jogn Palfrey and a Question & Answer section with these two panelists.

Library 2.0 Panel 1, Part 2 includes presentations from panelists Ann Wolpert, Director of Libraries, MIT, and Charles Cronin, Visiting Fellow, Yale Information Society Project and a Question & Answer section with these two panelists.
