in the Newsletter Issue: The Social Library — 2013
Social today means so much more than sending a tweet or posting to Facebook. The social librarian is enmeshed in the fabric of the Internet of Things as curator, educator, filter and beacon. In this complex, dynamic and demanding environment, librarians are extending themselves and empowering library users.
In recognition of this, Elsevier's Library Connect Newsletter (@library_connect) and Joe Murphy (@libraryfuture), Librarian & Technology Analyst/Trend Spotter, offer up a visual portrait of The Social Librarian, and invite you to download and post, share on your social streams, and discuss with your library stakeholders.
(GET A FREE BAG! Identify at least two of the four Elsevier product symbols in the graphic, email the response to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your mailing address. The first 100 respondents will receive a "Never underestimate the power of a librarian" tote bag. HINT: Some symbols are new and some are vintage.)
