Managing Social Media in Libraries, by Troy Swanson #libraries #socialmedia #books

Managing Social Media in Libraries, by Troy Swanson #libraries #socialmedia #books | social media | Scoop.it
Managing Social Media in Libraries, published by Woodhead Publishing. ISBN 978 1 84334 711 8. E-ISBN 978 1 78063 377 0. Book. Swanson.

 

"Provides practical ways of thinking about social media for library managers and leaders
- provides examples of policies, workflows, and uses of social media tools for library managers and leaders
- defines organizations as coordinated systems and discusses how social media tools can emphasize the benefits of coordination
- presents a context for social media in libraries

Web 2.0 first created a scramble among librarians to participate in Facebook, YouTube, blogs, and other social media applications, and the turn is now towards management and consolidation. Managing Social Media in Libraries explores the developing information environment, the collaboration among library organizations, and the ways social media may convert the loose connections between library staff members. The book takes librarians beyond the mechanics of using social media, and establishes a framework to move library managers and leaders toward making social media effective. Managing Social Media in Libraries is structured around key topics in this area, including: refocusing after the first use of Web 2.0; library organisations as loosely coupled systems; social media within such systems; defining a purpose for the use of social media; connecting messages and tools; and integrating social media into standard websites."
