Hello New Grads,

Here is your chance to have your say about how social media is changing the way librarians work or about how it isn’t.

It’s great to be reminded of the great research IFLA committees do.
Do yourself a PD favour after you have completed the survey checkout some of the other reports the Free Access to Information and Freedom of Expression Commitee has pulled together.

“Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Social media has become a hugely important force in the world, and the historic events in recent months have proven how integral they are to how we engage, learn, and communicate in 2011.

In an effort to learn more about how librarians, library workers, library students, and library associations use social media, the Free Access to Information and Freedom of Expression committee of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions has developed a short survey on these topics. Our hope is that the results will allow us to communicate better with those in the worldwide library community – using the most effective tools at our disposal. We’re also very interested in those who DON’T use certain social media, and why they don’t.

If you have not yet done so, please take a few moments to complete the survey (deadline: Wednesday, 1 June 2011) and share it widely with your colleagues and members! Note: if you already have taken the survey, please do not take it again.
