This paper provides an overview of three technologies: blogs, RSS and wikis. It gives an introduction to each and explores how they are being used within the library community. RSS is of particular interest to libraries; it provides opportunities for interacting with library users and is already being incorporated into library catalogues and websites. Wikis too show promise for future development.
