Twitter meets the library catalogue

Roy Tennant’s article Twitter meets the library catalog is a great feature piece focussing on how one librarian is using new technology to promote and enhance the library catalogue. 

Emily Clasper, a Systems Operation Manager out of Suffolk, N.Y. has figured out a way to use Twitter to enhance the catalogue and I think she’s really on to something.  Like Ms. Clasper, I’ve been noticing more and more bloggers using Twitter feeds and it appears to be extremely successful. 

This is a great use of new technology and definitely something to consider for our own libraries.
