Hi all,


Thank you to everyone who has taken part in our research on the use of social media in the library to date. Your input has been invaluable. Using insights from our qualitative research  interviews, focus groups and Twitter party, we have created an online survey to help inform our white paper on the use and best practice of social media in the library:



Through this survey, we hope to establish how the use of social media differs by job role in the library and to determine the most useful social media tools and best applications for these tools in a library setting.  The survey will examine:

-          Using Social Media Channels in the Library

-          Measurability: The Impact of Social Media in the Library

-          Trends of Social Media in the Library

-          The Future of Social Media in the Library

The White Paper will be supplemented with a practical guide on using social media in the library, filled with tips, recommendations and case studies. Complete the survey by Monday, July 28th to contribute to our research and share your experiences to benefit the library community (t&c apply).  If you complete the survey in its entirety, you  will be entered in a drawing to win a $100 Amazon Gift card. Three winners will be selected.

Thanks again, for your interest and input.


Best wishes,
