Libraries are for Use

Demonstrating the value of librarianship

Moving more assuredly into social media


Social Media ToolsI’ve added a new tool to my social media repertoire  – Scoop.it.  I was actually looking for a way to collect stories, blog postings, etc. on a thread or hot-topic, like the AHA policy.  While Scoop.it is a little more permanent and formal than I had in mind, it came the closest to fitting that need.  So I started 3 Scoops:

I may still try my “thread” idea…I’m still getting the Scoops set up properly and integrated with my blog & feed reader.

I’ve also been trying to sort out all of my LIS stuff.  I realized that I wanted to post more more library-related stuff to FB, but that would be of no interest to my non-library friends (who are mostly hockey & family).  So I decided to separate my personas and have two Facebook accounts – one focused on my work, the other non-work.  I’m not sure how well this will work, so I’ve asked my FB friends for patience as I figure it out.  But this way, I’ll have a more limited and hopefully more interested audience for my ideas.

Finally, I’m trying to bring all this information together by creating a professional page for myself.  Right now, it’s just another page on this blog, and I’m not very happy with it.  I want a page that lists the blogs that I follow, the latest stuff from my Scoops, my books from LibraryThing (or is GoodReads the hip thing to use now?), the articles I read (from CiteULike, or should I move to Mendeley?), the links I’ve bookmarked (from del.icio.us – is that too “ought’s”?), and, of course, my latest blog postings on a page that looks cool.  Is that too much to ask?  Why is it so hard?
