Web 2.0 Updates

Scottish Libraries on Twitter

The Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) and CILIP in Scotland (CILIPS) have introduced Twitter to their suite of Web 2.0 services. SLIC and CILIPS aim to use this service as an additional communication tool, allowing members and other interested professionals using Twitter to receive instant updates on the activity of both organisations. Updates are at: http://twitter.com/scotlibraries. Tweets will cover topics such as CPD opportunities, new reports and publications, working party activity and all the latest news from SLIC and CILIPS. All information posted on Twitter will be distributed in alternative methods for those members who do not use or cannot access this service.
