Canadian Public Libraries: Monitor Tweets!

Want to monitor and analyze your library’s tweets, and the tweets of other Canadian public libraries? Chcck out Social-Biblio.ca.  Developed by Dr. Mary Cavanagh and Masters Student Max Neuvians of University of Ottawa’s School of Information Studies, Social-Biblio is a research and public library media monitoring tool that tracks and preserves Canadian public library’s Twitter activities.  

 

 

 

Why? Mary says it best in this video: “it’s a real-time discussion for 112 public libraries to see how libraries are using Twitter,  spark conversations among public libraries about their activities, and aggregate Twitter data and provides graphical statistical metrics.”

 

 

Have a look.  This tool has incredible potential for public libraries. And work with Mary and Max to further refine this beta. Way to go Mary and Max!
