abstract
This chapter describes a pilot program at Wake Forest University's Z. Smith Reynolds Library that was designed to revitalize our information literacy instruction through the introduction of Library 2.0 concepts. The pilot explored new methods and technologies that can be used to engage students in a collaborative environment. The goal was to produce a class that is more relevant to how students learn through using current information issues, collaborative social software, and information management applications. Included is a discussion of conventional information literacy program standards and educational theories that informed the framework of the pilot's structure
