Libraries took the advantage to get closer to their users when social media became prolific. Now most major libraries especially academic ones have pages on various social networks including Facebook, Instagram, Flikr, Whatsapp, Twitter etc.
There is a lot collaboration between library workers from different libraries with students, lecturers, teachers, patron, other library users and workers from different libraries sharing information of mutual benefit. In issues of research, conferences, workshops, seminars etc., there can be close collaboration, gathering of materials and information all through the use of social media.
Though the social media is an unofficial way of communication, it has become a very strong and effective network of disseminating information to intended audience.
It is recommended that social network can be official with regards to the use of it for collaboration and information sharing for the library.
The future holds big opportunities for the library in using the social media for other useful services. Apart from the sharing of information. It can also be used to lend soft books and other soft library materials. It can be used as platform for library workers to discuss their challenges, advice themselves and solve other pressing issues regarding the library.DOI: 10.33545/27076636.2021.v2.i1a.45Pages: 49-52 | Views: 301 | Downloads: 155Download Full Article: Click Here
