Paper: Social Networking Literacy Competencies for Librarians: Exploring Considerations and Engaging Participation

Direct to Complete Conference Paper by Joe Murphy and Heather Moulaison (6 pages; PDF)

From the Paper:

The social networking literate librarian possesses the skills necessary providing services in and with online social networking sites

Social networking sites are extremely popular across age groups and are central forums for accessing and sharing information. Librarians are responding to the popularity of social networking sites and their expanding role in the creation, use, and sharing of information by engaging them as a central medium for interacting with library patrons and providing services to meet their information needs.

Librarians need a new branch of skill sets specific to utilizing and leveraging social networking sites to provide quality services and maintain their role as information experts in a Web 2.0 world.
