FreeBook: Social Media in the Library

Using social media effectively enables libraries to connect with users in a space that they already occupy, while bringing added value to existing activities. This FreeBook thus provides library practitioners and students of Library and Information Science (LIS) with suggestions on how librarians, and academics, can use social media to improve audience engagement, create a community of users, and enhance the libraries profile – all of which is in light of Social Media in the Library.
