The social media landscape continues to evolve. Does your library have a social media strategy that can help you step outside the library bubble? By using such tools as Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook, libraries can promote their services and products and bond with their patrons. This session will include practical examples of how librarians are using these platforms and the latest research on social media policies.
