Hillcroft LRC

Social network

Posted on: November 22, 2013

Catalogue displayLike most Learning Resource Centres (LRC) in colleges and university libraries we promote our services and material to our students using social media  through our WordPress blog and Twitter. Many of our students are new to social media so we are building up their digital literacy knowledge by using these tools to promote our services.

This week we read in the Wikiman blog about a handy tool the Student Guide to Social Media created by the libraries of the Universities of Leeds, Manchester and York. It’s under Creative Commons licence so you can share it with others. The tool explains what social media is and why the different tools are important and explains how you can use different social media tools. This will help our students understand what social media is and how they can get the most from different social media tools.
