"While most librarians don’t turn to Facebook to look up murder victims and research torture stories, Astrid Lange does. Lange is a news librarian who heads the Library and Research Services at the Toronto Star. “Most users don’t know how to use privacy settings,” she told a group of information professionals last Wednesday at the OLA Super Conference 2012.
Lange was one of five speakers of “In The Now: How Special Libraries & Librarians are Using the Latest in Technology,” the pre-conference session hosted by the T-SLIS Network in Toronto.
The event brought together special librarians and non-traditional information professionals to share new tools and tactics to better serve their clients. Hot topics included social media monitoring, digital devices and building library services for tech-savvy users."
