Library Trends 59 (4) Spring 2011: Involving Users in the Co-Construction of Digital Knowledge in LAMs

 

Library Trends 59 (4) Spring 2011. Edited by Paul F. Marty and Michelle M. Kazmer

This issue of Library Trends, “Involving Users in the Co-Construction of Digital Knowledge in Libraries, Archives, and Museums", offers the chance to consider what social computing means for the future of libraries, archives, and museums, and to think carefully about the future trends and long-term implications of involving users in the co-construction of knowledge online. The authors of the following articles have thought broadly about the issues raised when we bring users into the mix in various ways and at various points in the information life cycle. Their efforts contribute to ongoing broad-based discussions about what happens when users are involved in shaping, guiding, and directing the development of online libraries, archives, and museums and their information resources.
