Thing 13 - Facebook & social networking

In January, with the help and encouragement of Michelle Mumford at Nuffield College, I began Harris Manchester Library Facebook page and so far it seems to be engaging our users in a fruitful way. We use it to:
  • post photos of our new Gallery to encourage new users who previously wouldn't have been able to find a study space;
  • include opening information, information on our collections, links to our main website and library contacts;
  • enable users to search SOLO, JSTOR, and other resource finders;
  • see new acquisitions via the RSS/Blog tab;
  • have reciprocal links with the JCR blog.
