Taylor & Francis white paper on social media use in libraries

“88% of librarians think that social media will become more important in the future

Do you agree? How has social media impacted your library? Do you think it’s a worthwhile investment of time, or an unnecessary distraction?

To investigate exactly how libraries are using social media today and gain some insight into what the future might hold, Taylor & Francis have released a new white paper which uncovers some interesting discoveries.

While such a high proportion of librarians view social media as becoming an increasingly prevalent form of communication, only a small number are formally managing their output – with only 25% of librarians scheduling posts in advance.

Social media has the potential to facilitate closer relationships between libraries and their patrons, but the way social media tools are selected and used in libraries is ever changing as digital and social climates continue to evolve.

Looking for inspiration on how to develop your library’s social media presence further? Take a look at the new white paper to see how your library’s social media accounts compare to those of the 600 librarians who took part in our research worldwide.

Kind regards,
Jodie Bell
Communications Manager, Library Relations
