Social Networking Literacy Competencies for Librarians

(From: The Resource Shelf)
for pointing out the recent paper Social Networking Literacy Competencies for Librarians: Exploring Considerations and Engaging Participation by Joe Murphy and Heather Moulaison from the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) 14th National Conference, Pushing the Edge: Explore, Engage, Extend at Seattle, Washington on March 14, 2009. (From: The Resource Shelf)
So what do we need?:
Understanding and Articulating Social Networking Sites and Their Roles
Creating Content
Evaluating Information
Applying Information Ethically and Legally
Searching and Navigating
Providing Services
I don’t see the role of librarians in social sites as any more necessary as when we had to get libraries on to the web in the first place. You just go where the users are. It’s as simple as that.
