This bibliography of articles about library 2.0 starts with the most recent research. The term Library 2.0 was coined by Michael Casey on LibraryCrunch in 2005. Concepts such as "Library 2.0" emerged as an obvious spinoff of "web 2.0", a term popularized by O'Reilly Media. In 2012, the term seems to be in decline.
