Social Media and the School Librarian
MetadataShow full item record
Social media are a popular way for students to communicate with each other. School librarians are starting to use this popular form of communication to interact with their students. This paper will explore the different social media sites that students use, which ones are their favorites, types of posts that students are most interested in viewing, and the types of posts that students respond to most. This can be used to help school librarians choose which social networking sites to use. The research, conducted in a midsized school district in a suburb of a Midwestern city at the middle and high school level, involved surveying students at these grade levels as well as school librarians in the same city.
