libraries using Facebook Pages

Facebook Pages were launched on November 7th as “distinct, customized profiles designed for businesses, bands, celebrities and more to represent themselves on Facebook”. Facebook pages are similar to group pages, and include newsfeeds and the ability to add applications.

The great thing about Pages is that there’s a category for “Library / Public Building”. A number of libraries have already started creating their Facebook pages. Canadian libraries include:

Ryerson University Library

University of Windsor Leddy Library

McMaster University Mills Library

York University Peter F. Bronfman Business Library

Queen’s University Douglas Library

Brampton Library’s Anime-Manga Club

A group has also been created for Libraries using Facebook Pages.

As of today, there were 65 library pages. Expect this number to grow quickly, as more libraries add their presence to Facebook.
