Social Media Week: Social Media Week: Library 3.0 — Introducing the Social Catalog
February 22, 2013
Traditionally, library catalogs allowed only one-to-one relationship between the library and patrons who wanted to search and find media for research or leisurely reading, listening, and watching. The recent introduction of social features, such as friending, following,
and public bookshelves and reading lists, now allow patrons to engage with other readers and librarians, making it a truly social interaction.
Join us for a showcase with librarians and social media practitioners who will discuss how the social catalog is changing the relationship between readers and libraries, how it affects the discovery process, and what the future holds in bringing together readers, writers, and educators across the country and beyond.
The New York Public Library is proud to be a part of this year's Social Media Week. Starting Sunday, February 18, listen and learn from professionals from around the globe as they "explore the social, cultural and economic impact of social media. Their mission is to help people and organizations connect through collaboration, learning and the sharing of ideas and information." This event is open to the public. Reserve your spot today, space is limited.
