Social media for a library is no longer a novelty; it’s part of how most modern-day libraries operate.
However, social media as a platform has matured. It’s not the same as it was ten, five, or even one year ago! And it’s not just user demographics that have changed…how and why people use it (or perhaps don’t) have also evolved, and perhaps in some unexpected ways.
Join author Laura Solomon, who has written three books about social media and libraries, for an in-depth look at what’s happening now with social media and the challenges libraries may have going forward.
Laura Solomon, MCIW, MLS, is the Library Services Manager for the Ohio Public Library Information Network. She has been doing web development and design for more than twenty years, in both public libraries and as an independent consultant. She specializes in developing with Drupal. She is a 2010 Library Journal Mover & Shaker. She’s written three books about social media and content marketing, specifically for libraries, and speaks nationally on both these and technology-related topics. As a former children’s librarian, she enjoys bringing the “fun of technology” to audiences and in giving libraries the tools they need to better serve the virtual customer.
