Streamlining a blog, a Facebook page, a Twitter account and news blurbs on the website.
In July I began work as a Web Services Librarian at the Eccles Health Sciences Library at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT. One of my first tasks is to wrangle together the library's blog (unused), Facebook page (well-used) and add a Twitter account (yet to be created). In addition I am to draft a proposed policy for these social media for approval.
I began by sending an inquiry to the listerv at LITA (Library Information Technology Association) for advice on tools and software to help. I quickly received a number of helpful responses from colleagues and as a result of their advice chose to use HootSuite to combine updates for Twitter, Facebook and a blog. I am now posting to my blog to see how it feed through HootSuite to my personal Twitter account set up for just this purpose. I will see how well this works. #fb
