The rise of Web 2.0 has led to an explosion of new tools and technologies that foster online collaboration and communication. Blogs, wikis, RSS feeds, folksonomies, social networks and other components of the 2.0 environment offer librarians myriad avenues to incorporate new technologies into their instruction sessions, from "one-shots" to quarter- or semester-long classes. They also offer rich opportunities for librarians to share their knowledge and expertise through training and educating library and even college or university staff about these emerging and evolving tools.
