Social Media, Libraries, and Web 2.0: How American Libraries are Using New Tools for Public Relations and to Attract new Users - Nov. 2009
I have finally finished compiling the results of the Social Media, Libraries, and Web 2.0: How American Libraries are Using New Tools for Public Relations and to Attract new Users - Second Survey November 2009 into a 15 page report. I was truly amazed at all of the extremely useful comments. It was quite difficult narrowing it down to the most substantial and useful for the purposes of the report.
The report can now be found on Slideshare.
You can make comments on the report at the Slideshare page if you have an account. You can also download the report or email it to others who may be interested, etc.
As a result of the growing numbers of library staff members and those who serve on boards of trustees and interested friends groups (768 took the survey), I am planning to conduct it twice in 2010.
To those of you who responded, thank you for your time and thoughtful input. I hope you enjoy it and can find it useful.
Happy New Year!
