4 Current problems with information supply Our current information policy resembles the worst aspects of our old agricultural policy, which left grain rotting in thousands of storage files while people were starving. We have warehouses of unused information rotting while critical questions are left unanswered and critical problems are left unresolved. Al Gore

5 Current problems in access to information A picture that captures in one image how doctors feel about information

33 WAO Website Receives MarCom 2011 Gold Award The Gold Award is presented to entrants exceeding the high standards of the industry norm. WAO is proud to be part of the 18% that received the MarCom Gold Award in 2011. In addition, WAO also received an Honorable Mention for the Cancún Insider, the newsletter of the XXII World Allergy Congress (WAC 2011).

34 From web1.0 to web 3.0  “The development of the graphical web from its early days in 1995 to the social web of late 2011 is comparable to the developing brain.”  "Whereas web 1.0 and 2.0 were embryonic, formative technologies, web 3.0 promises to be a more mature web where better ‘pathways’ for information retrieval will be created, and a greater capacity for cognitive processing of information will be built.”

35 Web 1.0  Web 2.0 Web 1.0  Web 2.0 Portal, like Yahoo  Search, like Google Publishing (websites)  Participation (blogs, comments) Stickiness, stay on the website  Syndication, RSS, Podcast, website follows you Britannica Online  Wikipedia Directories, Favorites  Tags - MS WordG Docs & Spreadsheets Ads, like DoubleClick  Google AdSense

36 Current state of the web  Web 2.0 is primarily about the benefits of easy to use and free internet software  Blogs and wikis facilitate participation and conversations across a vast geographical expanse  Information pushing devices, like RSS feeds, permit continuous instant alerting to the latest ideas in medicine  Multimedia tools like podcasts and videocasts are increasingly popular in medical schools and medical journals





41 Finding the best evidence  In medicine, finding the best evidence has become increasingly difficult, even for librarians  Despite its constant accessibility, Google’s search results are emblematic of an approaching crisis with information overload, and this is duplicated by Yahoo and other search engines  Consequently, medical librarians are leading doctors back to trusted sources, such as PubMed, Clinical Evidence, and the Cochrane Library, and even taking them to their library bookshelves instead.  Unless better channels of information are created in web 3.0, we can expect the information glut to continue.
