Twitter Research 1

A new way to do online research is to follow one or more libraries who are tweeting things like:
• acquisitions
• events
• general library news
• links to their blog posts
• new digital services
• hints on doing library research
All you have to do is click on Twitter Library Search and choose which libraries you’d like to follow.
Alternatively, you can search for libraries at WeFollow.
You might wish to follow your local library, a large state library or a university library in your state, and other libraries whose tweets are useful to you – as availability allows.
I’ve found some items of general interest @UVM_Libraries (University of Vermont libraries), where, e.g., they’ve linked to an article telling how faculty can help students improve their library research.
