I went to an interesting talk today about the future of library e-services, especially in the light of web 2.0 technologies. Quite interesting, a lot of ideas, maybe not groundbreaking yet but with a lot of potential i think. And quite a few people out there trying to make it real.
Check out the Shared Innovation blog for example, which gathers various initiatives. The guy who gave the talk is from Talis, a company that "provides the leading library management systems to the UK and Ireland library marketplace".
