Space Up Your Library! The Social Net Works! EAHIL2008

Space up your library: social networks and libraries A.J.P. van den Brekel (Guus) (The Netherlands) [slides]

Drawing the line further from where "Getting into the User Environment" stopped, this presentation invites everybody to look more deeply into the use of social networks (open or closed) by our users in general and focusses in particular on the development of library services inside various types of social networks.What are the benefits of making your medical library visible inside MySpace or Facebook? And how do online personal startpage applications like iGoogle, Netvibes or Pageflakes fit into this? The network (evolved by technology) is changing the users behaviour and that will affect the future of information services.

With many thanks to Ana Ivkovic,
