Libraries and Facebook

January 27, 2008

Libraries and Facebook is a recent study from the University of London’s Libraries and Social Software in Education Project (LASSIE).

The objectives of the study were:

· To investigate the value of Facebook as a professional networking tool for libraries and librarians
· To explore the availability and potential value of library related applications in Facebook
· To make tentative recommendations about how libraries could use Facebook

To-date, over 400 libraries have made use of Facebook pages compared to 65 a few months ago.
