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.

I know I’ve made the right decision.

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:
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.
