Abstract

Most key legal populations are widely embracing social media. The positive uses can help students gain notoriety and followers and perhaps even land them a job. But, it’s often the negative uses we’re more likely to hear about. The author argues that law libraries need to take a stronger lead in teaching our users how to disseminate reliable, authentic, and private information. She concludes that social media is an information practice and librarians should take charge.

Keywords: social media, best practices, libraries
