924 views

Published on

Google, Twitter, and Wikipedia are consistently in the Top 10 most visited sites on the Internet, but each is much more than a simple destination. All three have great potential for providing reference assistance to patrons, keeping up-to-date on current events and trends, and sharing your expertise with the wider world. This program will share ideas on how to take an active role in each of these resources and how to get the most out of each one.
