Librarian-ing on Twitter

A better title for this post might be “Readers’ Advisory on Twitter” but making up a word was more fun and less jargon-y.

Anywho, I have a break from school until classes start back up at the end of January which is very exciting. During that time I plan to – when I’m already on Twitter – search for people who have asked for book recommendations. I’ve been doing it sporadically for some time, sparked by the “Slam the Boards” assignment I had last spring (2013).

I enjoy it and there’s a chance that the folks I interact with will go to their library to pick up these books. Muahhhaaa, my hidden agenda uncovered!!

P.S. My first year anniversary of working as a library associate at AACPL was yesterday. Cheers! 🙂
