  • 12. Research questions What are their general attitudes about the relevance of social media, with regards to meeting the library’s objectives? This can be a range of questions posed to different grades of staff
  • 13. Research questions Are there underlying factors facilitating or hindering their adoption of social media tools? E.g. Internet and IT infrastructure, knowledge, organisational policy, nature of work.
  • 14. Research questions What is their level of awareness and experience in the availability and use? E.g. are they aware of any pitfalls in using new media tools?
