Twitter party – Social media in the library!

Twitter party – sudjelujte u istraživanju o utjecaju i upotrebi društvenih medija u knjižnicama!

Taylor & Francis is investigating how social media is used in the academic library and how this differs based on the experience level, knowledge, and focus of librarians. We are producing a White Paper ( and, as part of this research, we’re hosting a Twitter party on Thursday June 5 between 10:00-10:45 AM, EDT, to discover your thoughts on using social media in the library.

Take part in our qualitative research and engage with other librarians through one of the most popular means of social communication, Twitter!  Your input will help form the basis of our upcoming White Paper.

Is this your first Twitter party? Here’s how to take part:

Register by June 4th and sign into Twitter on the time and day above, and then search for #tfsocialmedia. You’ll instantly see the discussion and can join in by tweeting @librarylantern, using #tfsocialmedia to share your thoughts on:
