University Libraries Web 2.0. Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter and more.
Last Updated: Jul 12, 2013
University Libraries maintains a presence on myriad Web 2.0 social media and networking sites. These websites are popular "third spaces" that provide us with an opportunity to connect with the SBU Community beyond our physical location and website. Our reasons for participating include:
- Outreach Many of our patrons, especially students, are active in social networking sites. We use sites like Facebook to maintain an online presence that is a gateway to our services, resources, news and events.
- Interaction/ Reference Social networking sites provide platforms for online interaction. Many libraries and universities use sites like Twitter to interact with students, faculty and others in the online community.
- Online Media Library The image sharing site Flickr includes an active community of libraries, universities and institutions (the Smithsonian, the White House, Yale Libraries, Stony Brook University, the Library of Congress, and many more); we use Flickr for easily and effectively organizing and providing access to digital images and collections.
- Library Connections
Library Connections is the University Libraries online newsletter/ blog. See new and notable, events, collection highlights and more.
Includes news, hours, events, photos and Ask A Librarian.
- Special Collections & University Archives Pinterest
Special Collections and University Archives is the steward of Stony Brook University's distinct, rare, and unique research collections.
Our Flickr photos include Special Collections & University Archives Long Island Postcard Collection, Roth Pond Regatta 2012, and more.
We use Twitter to announce library news and events. SBU students, faculty and staff users can use Twitter to post questions to the libraries' Question & Answer online reference service.
YouTube is our platform for sharing video tutorials on a number of online research activities.
