NYU Health Sciences Library implements Twitter

Laika’s Blog summarizes an article from Medical Reference Services Quarterly detailing New York University Health Sciences Library’s implementation of Twitter, Facebook, and a library blog “to give users as many options as possible to keep current with library news, resources, and services.” The article includes a flowchart illustrating how information created in one of these sources flows to the others without duplicating effort.  A free companion program, CoTwitter, is also described; CoTwitter allows the workload of creating “tweets” to be shared among the staff.

  1. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as
    I provide credit and sources back to your blog?
    My website is in the very same area of interest as yours and my visitors would truly
    benefit from some of the information you provide here.
    Please let me know if this ok with you. Appreciate it!
