Abstract

A key element of the technology is that it allows people to create, share, collaborate & communicate. The Web 2.0 differs from ordinary websites as it does not require any web design or publishing skills to participate, making it easy for people to create and publish or communicate their work to the world. The nature of this technology makes it an easy and popular way to communicate information to either a select group of people or to a much wider audience. The Web 2.0 paradigm has gained substantial momentum in the last decade. The influence of Web 2.0 principles and technologies has fuelled an explosion of information and media content on the Web, and individual and corporate adoption of the technologies continues to rise. In this milieu it is imperative to understand and learn about the present and evolving web 2.0 tools and their application in different walks of life. The proposed study made an endeavour to dig deep into the genesis, development and application of various Web 2.0 tools in library and information science.
