Abstract A brief overview of the technology underlying the Bahá'í Library Online circa 2003, and why this technology represents the next step in the Internet's evolution [since this essay was written, the term Web 2.0 has been popularized for said "next step"].
Notes Presented to the Bahá'í Language Educators Special Interest Group session of the Association for Bahá'í Studies Conference, August 29 2003, San Francisco. See also Notes about and history of the Bahá'í Library Online, Mandate/Vision, and Organizing Digital Collections: The Case of the Bahá'í Academics Resource Library (D. Valeda, 2003) from the International Conference on Bahá'í Libraries and Archives.

This is a brief summary written by a layperson, not a polished article. I prepared it so that users of the Bahá'í Library Online (myself included!) would better understand the way this new system works and its potential. See also
