When we return books through the library slot, sometimes we can see the librarian taking them on the other side (known as THE HAND).— CherylBernstein (@CherylBernstein) June 24, 2013
Today THE HAND came up the slot, scrabbling, pretending to chase the books in a jokey (but slightly horrifying) manner. Very good.— CherylBernstein (@CherylBernstein) June 24, 2013
How have we been making use of social media? Are libraries doing it right? It’s one of the hot topics in the library and information landscape. The combination of articles, conference subjects, and an email chat with Tosca Waerea, Social Media Co-ordinator at Auckland Libraries, has made me think about turning that around. Why don’t we, as librarians, start talking more about what we actually do?
I am going to discuss how we at Christchurch City Libraries use social media – what we think is important, what we do, and why we do it. Hopefully it opens up a dialogue amongst Kiwi librarians. Wouldn’t it be grand if our information community were more forthcoming about sharing information on making the best use of social media?
