best uses of Facebook by libraries

Facebook for libraries is a great tool for connecting to a wide range of people. And some of the best uses of Facebook for a library are;

  • advertising events
  • connecting to clients, asking them questions with access to immediate responses via the comments box, like the Melbourne Athenaeum Library 
  • telling clients about other social media the library is using, such as blogs, flickr, twitter etc
  • connecting to clients who are unable to come into the library
  • book reviews
  • updating e-resources in a quick, exciting way, check out the New York Public Library page

Facebook is used for other organisations regarding libraries, & one that is obviously of interest to me isthe ALIA National Library Technicians Group
