Social Media and Collaboration
I just came across this very useful site produced by the Research Information Network, "a policy unit funded by the UK higher education funding councils, the seven research councils and the three national libraries." Of particular interest is this pdf: "Social Media: A Guide for Researchers." Described by the authors as a 'warts and all' overview of social media use, this seems like an excellent tool for librarians to have in their toolkit when working with faculty members. So often I hear of faculty who are reluctant to enter the social media fray. This quick read could be a very helpful introduction and open new avenues of collaboration for scholars, researchers and faculty in their work.
