Now Tweeting: Law Library of Congress

Now that we have a couple of years or more of using social media to benefit the Library’s missions, we’re letting other folks around the institution get in the act.

The “Books and Beyond” series in the Center for the Book launched a Facebook page, which is essentially an online book club, with the recent National Book Festival. (external link)  And now the Law Library of Congress has launched a feed on Twitter (external link).

The purpose of the Twitter feed, according to the Law Library, is “to engage Members of Congress, their staff, other law libraries, students, professors, librarians, and researchers.  … It will also serve as a venue for feedback on our material.”

Stay tuned for more social media-related announcements in coming days.

    I’m impressed with how much they’re using Twitter to engage with their audience. Hopefully they’ll keep it up.

    I’m not sure what to think about this, I’ll have too see what you are sending out.
