Stuck in the Social Web

PRESENTER:
Laura M. Wight, Associate Professor / Information Literacy Librarian, South Dakota State University 

SESSION DESCRIPTION:
The growing popularity and sheer number of social web applications is at times overwhelming. As library professionals with busy schedules and limited resources we must learn to discriminate between the technology fad of the week and applications we can capitalize on to improve our services. This session will identify the scope and relevance of social web applications such as Facebook, Myspace, Meebo, blogs and wikis. Attendees will get to view examples of social web implementation successes and failures, and the tips and tricks to determining which of the varied applications might be the best fit for their library.
