                Facilitator: Bonaria Biancu,  librarian, University of Milano Bicocca


Websites, documents, presentations, wikis, specialised databases: how can we aggregate such diversified information sources? By the collaborative and interactive tools now provided by the Web. The workshop will focus on how to build IR applications aimed to retrieve interesting content (independently from the original website) and how to use some 2.0 tools to maximise information reuse and dissemination.

Beginning with concrete examples of online archives and Web 2.0 resources, we will then propose some possible methodologies for the development of educational modules and documentation practice. These new technologies can take advantage of the potential of
