Social Media

social network

Social media tools have brought innovations that turned the Web from a read-only environment into an online community where people meet, exchange information, collaborate, and communicate using web-based tools and social networking sites. These tools are now core to the internet, and a rapidly growing percentage of people now expect to be able to interact with people and content. How can your library benefit from and participate in social media?

Self-paced courses and webinar recordings on this topic are freely available in the WebJunction Course Catalog.
