When Books Are Your Friends
Chudnov, Daniel
Computers in Libraries, v29 n10 p26-28 Nov-Dec 2009
Since most libraries are now hosting their own web sites, this author advocates for a social network centered on the work of building and supporting resource-rich library sites. While there are already several social networks for books, books are just one thing that libraries make available. A social network that helps people share what they are doing, not just what they are reading, would allow library staff as well as users to be informed of current projects, ask questions about them right away, follow the staff that is working on them, and highlight his or her interest in the materials.
