Academic Library Use of Facebook: Building Relationships with Students
Phillips, Nancy Kim
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v37 n6 p512-522 Dec 2011
A content analysis was conducted of status messages posted by academic libraries on seventeen Facebook pages. In addition to being informational, libraries attempt to engage and establish rapport with students through Facebook. The university setting not only creates a context for messages, but also offers a mutual set of experiences and values shared by libraries and students. (Contains 8 tables.)
