I am pleased to announce we have a Library Twitter account which I hope will be useful in promting library & learning resources services.

Twitter is being used my many organisations including universities e.g Birmingham City university and is fast becoming a popular tool in education.

It took very little time to set up the account however the real work will come in the creation of content and finding ways in which to engage our user community, luckily we can look to other institution for inspiration as well as this useful post on Scott’s Library Blog

If you are interested in setting up a Twitter account you can sign up at http://twitter.com/. If you are looking for inspiration as to what to do next, Phil Bradley has a good introduction to your first 24 hours using twitter http://www.philb.com/twitter.htm Phil also has created a list of UK librarians if you want some people to follow
