Stuck in the Social
Laura M. Wight, Associate Professor
/ Information Literacy Librarian, South Dakota State University
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.
