  • Social networking tools are gaining momentum and are increasingly in the limelight, yet the benefits of using them are not always clear.  This presentation will focus on how librarians are using social networking tools to connect, share and collaborate.  Specific tools and their benefits, as well as the concerns that people have with them will be topics of discussion.  Tools to be discussed will include blogs, micro-blogs, wikis, networking sites, team collaboration tools and more.
