English abstract

It is a pretty near impossible task to attempt an all encompassing picture of how Nordic public libraries work with different types of social networking tools, or how libraries use traditional web solutions together with web 2.0 applications. Something that is red-hot one year can be technically dated and old half a year later. Continual upgrades, adjustments and improvements are the norm. A telling metaphor for web 2.0 is that it is ‘in permanent beta’ and this is certainly true of library 2.0. Products on show at exhibitions or featured in marketing material do not always reflect final release versions. So, with these reservations I will try to present a picture of the current situation in the Nordic Countries – starting with Sweden as it is the country I am most familiar with. Generally speaking, Integrated Library Systems – which are mainly what we are considering here – include CMS software for publishing web content and an automated library system with modules for cataloguing and circulation. The basic system can be augmented with additional functions and applications designed to promote social networking with and for library patrons.
