SLA PartnerTalk: Social Media in the Library: Discovering Best Practice

Access the recording of this free SLA PartnerTalk webinar, sponsored by Taylor & Francis.

The ways social media tools are selected and used in the library change regularly in an evolving digital and social climate.  With so many tools available, multiple uses, and many librarians making use of these tools in their libraries, Taylor & Francis has produced a white paper that analyzes the challenges and opportunities presented by social media as a communications tool in the library. The white paper considers social media use in the library, the most useful social media tools, and the best applications of these tools in a library setting.

Use of Social Media by the Library: Current Practices and Future Opportunities is based on findings from focus groups in the U.K., the U.S. and India, in-depth telephone interviews, a Twitter party, and an extensive survey. Taylor & Francis looks forward to sharing its research findings with SLA members, including recommendations for best practices, with clear action points for implementation in a library setting.

Date:  Wednesday, February 25
Time:  2:00 p.m. EST (what time is that where you are?)
Registration:  via GoToWebinar
Sponsor:  Taylor & Francis
