Competencies of a 2.0 Librarian

So what do you think it takes to be a 2.0 librarian? David Lee King gives his thoughts here, based on a conversation started about minimum competencies at the Library Revolution blog. Some highlights from his list:

  • write and post to a blog
  • add photos and videos to a blog post
  • social network knowledge – basic understanding of Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, etc
  • use and explain rss and rss readers to others
  • basic console gaming skills (multiple formats preferred)

I’d add wiki knowledge to the list. it’s important when people ask to be able to make sensible pronouncements on the merits of MediaWiki, say, over PBwiki (or vice versa).
Food for thought, at any rate.
