Asking the Right Questions: A Critique of Facebook, Social Media, and Libraries
Bodnar, Jonathan; Doshi, Ameet
Public Services Quarterly, v7 n3-4 p102-110 2011
Reflecting on the library literature on Facebook, our experience using Facebook and other social networking sites professionally, and our discussions with librarians about these tools, we question the use of social networking sites in academic libraries and note opportunities for discussion and research. Ultimately, we encourage librarians and others to think more deeply about the use of social networking sites in their libraries while critically examining both the tools themselves and what others have said and written about them. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
