Description

The emergence of social networks designed specifically for academia is a fairly recent trend. Academic social networking sites combine "traditional" features of social networking with practical research-oriented functions such as organizing papers, bibliographic management, and pdf annotating. Librarians need to step forward at this new opportunity to collaborate and connect with faculty and students. Librarians have a role educating members of the academic community in the use of scholarly social networking sites.
