HERRERA MORILLAS, José Luis  and  CASTILLO DIAZ, Ana. University libraries 2.0. The case of Spain. Investig. bibl [online]. 2011, vol.25, n.55, pp.175-200. ISSN 2448-8321.

This paper aims to explore the status and construction pattern of Web 2.0 technologies employed in Spanish university libraries, its purpose and features. A combination of online survey and content analysis methodology is applied to 63 Spanish university libraries' websites. The most used 2.0 tools are OPAC, social networks and blogs, while the less abundant are the folksonomies and webs to share files such as YouTube or Flickr.

Keywords : University libraries; Web 2.0; Libraries 2.0; Spanish libraries.
