RSS Like “automated web surfing,” RSS allows users to keep abreast of interesting updates without visiting individual sites. This has value to libraries through: linking to other sites (such as news, weather, etc) on the library web page.

Instant Messaging Instant Messaging, a real time synchronous conversation between two people via the internet, is becoming increasingly useful to libraries. IM can be a powerful tool for reference. Some users may be embarrassed to ask questions, and prefer the anonymity of IM Be sure to Train staff; after all, it’s still a reference interview. Check out Meebo through RUL Promote, Promote, Promote! Give your IM service a web presence Put chat names on business cards, & the library web page For more info check out: http:// www.libsuccess.org/index.php?title = Online_Reference

Blogs and Libraries

Purposes of Library Blogs Blogs used by libraries fall mostly into two broad categories: Blogs that serve the public by promoting library services, collections, and events Blogs that serve library staff by facilitating communication (like an intranet or email list).

Blogs used by libraries fall mostly into two broad categories:

Blogs that serve the public by promoting library services, collections, and events

Blogs that serve library staff by facilitating communication (like an intranet or email list).

Library Blogs for the Public Why use blogs to communicate with the public? Allow two-way communication with users Create transparency regarding library decisions (e.g. updates for large construction projects) Gather information in one place Introduce staff to the public (e.g. profiles) What do libraries put on their blogs? Announcements of events and service updates (e.g. changes in library hours) Information for a particular user group (e.g. teens, graduate students)  Links to database trials, new subscriptions, and underutilized resources

Staff Blogs Why use blogs for staff communication? R educe email and email-related problems (e.g. lost emails, messages stuck in spam filters) Centralize staff information in one easy-to-find location, rather than scattered throughout emails Facilitate direct conversation on a topic via comments Provide an opportunity and incentive (or requirement) for staff to become proficient in blogging and other Web 2.0 technologies.

Why use blogs for staff communication?

R educe email and email-related problems (e.g. lost emails, messages stuck in spam filters)

Centralize staff information in one easy-to-find location, rather than scattered throughout emails

Facilitate direct conversation on a topic via comments

Provide an opportunity and incentive (or requirement) for staff to become proficient in blogging and other Web 2.0 technologies.

Best Practices for Library Blogs Train your staff adequately and establish style guidelines for consistency and clarity (e.g. avoiding library jargon, using consistent acronyms or none at all). Designate a point person to offer some editorial oversight on public blog posts, Integrate the blog with the library’s website by providing easy links to the library catalog and other features. Use “soft opening” techniques to introduce your blog to the public. Launch by putting the blog up, adding a few posts, and adding links from the home page…then really ramp up advertising after a few weeks of regular posting from staff and/or users.

Flickr An image-hosting online community Began as an online game but is now a way for people to upload and share photos “ What was once the digital equivalence of a shoebox became a vibrant community built around photos and a vast collaborative effort to produce an infinite scrapbook.” Registered users can comment on photos, create image “pools” around a central theme, and select favorite pictures. - Levy, S. & Stone, B. (April 3, 2006). The new wisdom of the web . Newsweek. www.msnbc.msn.com . As cited in LTR report.
