Web3: Not Your Grandmother’s World Wide Web

It might seem like only yesterday that Web 2.0 was new and shiny, but there’s a new kid on the online block who is bringing a number of newer technologies to play.

Learn what makes the next iteration of the WWW different from its predecessors, and what new things it is already making possible.

We’ll also discuss what some of these new digital components might mean for libraries in the not-too-far future as Web3 continues to evolve.


Laura Solomon is the Library Services Manager for the Ohio Public Library Information Network and a W3C-certified front-end web developer.
