Library Facebook bundles

Colette Harlowe at GMIT put together Libraries on Facebook.

Libraries on Facebook represents two separate RSS feed bundles. One group contains international library Facebook accounts, whereas another one tunes into libraries from Ireland. They may be subscribed to by anyone with a gmail address. This is the shortened link to the 50 international bundle: http://goo.gl/kbSmi

This is the shortened link to the 46 libraries from Ireland bundle: http://goo.gl/UEWyT

How do you use this?

Why did Colette create this?
Colette wanted to follow updates on Facebook without having to to log in directly. Membership on Facebook is not required. This may be of interest to libraries that are formulating their social media policy/strategy and wish to research just what other libraries are up to on Facebook.

  1. Excellent link Alex. A really great idea and resource by Colette. I never knew so many Irish libraries were on Facebook. I have added the Irish Libraries bundle to the 'Special' tab of the LIS Career Development netvibes portal also if this is ok.
