  • 5. Study details
    Sample
    Public and academic libraries in Illinois
    147 out of 699 (21%) public libraries
    78 out of 153 (51%) academic libraries in Illinois
    Analyzed library web site for
    Use of social interaction tools
    Levels of interaction provided by tools, if present
  • 6. A very surprising finding
  • 7. This percentage may be high
  • 8. Social tools are not used much in public libraries
  • 9. These statistics are helped by statewide initiatives
  • 10. Some social tools are used more in in academic libraries
  • 11. Some observations

    Blogs are used five times more in academia
    Academic libraries are three times more likely to Twitter

    With one notable exception
  • 12.

  • 14. A relationship begins to emerge…
    Libraries with notification services
  • 15. Some preliminary observations
    Use of social tools in society is increasing rapidly
    Use of social tools in libraries is minimal (or nonexistant) in most cases
    Income and demographics appear to have a relationship to the adoption of social network tools
  • 16. Further research
    Need to complete survey of all public and academic libraries in state
    Need to dig more deeply into presence in some contexts
    May not necessarily advertise various presences on the library’s web site
    Explore reasons why libraries have not adopted
    How do we increase usage?
