Event: Meeting, Tweeting and FBing – Social media for information professionals

How useful is social media for libraries? Can Facebook really help me to promote what I do? What benefits can using LinkedIn bring me as an information professional? Come along to the National Library of Scotland and hear Bryan Christie and Nick Goldstein answer these and other questions, as they talk about the use of social media and networking for information professionals.
