The purpose of this survey was to understand what kinds of archives and special collections use social media, as well as how and why they use these online platforms. I conducted the survey from July 18 to July 31, 2012 and received 185 responses from repositories of all types and sizes. Based on the results, most archivists and special collections librarians were still trying to figure out whether social media works for their repository, and how best to use it.
These guides are intended to be one-page, ready reference sheets for archivists and librarians using social media. The guides include suggestions on what to post and when to post, tips for good content, a few projects to try, a few options for measuring social media “success,” and some repositories who I think use that platform to their advantage.
