valuing libraries

Yesterday I wrote a post on my day to day blog about how the lack of visibility, websites and social media in a library may reflect a lack of value and support in the overall organisation.

I tweeted this post and received great responses and ongoing conversation on this subject. Later today I will Storify the tweets. And once I’ve finished assessment 2 I will come back and flesh out my thoughts a bit more.

First post for INF206

I would define social networking as: online spaces where you can have a conversation, share and collaborate.

Social networking that I actively use: Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Blogger, About.me, Diigo, GoodReads, Google+, Flickr, VimeoPandora, Pinterest and I regularly collaborate on Google Sites and Docs and communicate using Skype and IM (my main method of communication)!

I also have accounts on LibraryThing and Delicious however these are not updated regularly as I am ‘exploring’ alternatives (GoodReads and Diigo).

I am hoping to learn how to refine and evaluate my social networking so that I don’t instantly jump on every new thing that comes along! And how to use social networking within a local community, not just libraries and information services.
