Why Does My Library Use Social Media?

http://chronicle.com/blognetwork/theubiquitouslibrarian/2011/07/06/why-does-my-library-use-social-media/

When you ask most librarians why they have a social media presence they will likely say things like:

  • To promote library services, workshops, and events.
  • To provide better access to information.
  • To be where the users are.
  • To enhance instruction.
  • To collect feedback from patrons.

These are all fine actions— but they are what we are doing, not whywe are doing it.
