Social Media and Readers’ Advisory

Laurel Tarulli, Rebecca Anwyll, Brenda Chawner


The first of a two-part series examining the use of social media for readers’ advisory (RA) services, this column summarizes recent literature on the topic, and identifies the social media services most commonly used in New Zealand public libraries for RA services. Anwyll and Chawner present the findings of a small-scale research project examining the use of social media in New Zealand public libraries, with a focus on RA activities and practices. In the next issue, this column will be continued, with Anwyll and Chawner discussing the results of this research in more detail and identifying good practices for using social media in RA services.
