Library Presence In Social Networking Sites

Friends/

For a variety of purposes, I have created a brief 10-question SurveyMonkey survey on the presence of College and Research Libraries in one or more of the more popular Social Networking Sites (Facebook, MySpace, Orkut, etc.)

I would most appreciate if my Friends (and/or Enemies) [:-)] take this survey within the next 10 days

The survey requests basic information about library and institutional presence in any of the major Social Networking Sites, as well personal and/or professional membership.

THE SURVEY WAS RE-OPENED ON AUGUST 26 AND WILL BE AVAILABLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE FIRST ROUND !!!

The problem has been corrected.

Please revisit.

Hi
I would have liked a couple of options on why we don't have a presence. In our case it is because we are partially government funded and the state government filters our servers. All social networking sites are blocked - so while we will be funded to attend 2.0 training and encouraged to be 'innovative' we aren't allowed to access or use anything of interest (even Firefox is blocked). I think the extreme conservatism of government and university IT services sections is MAJOR limiting factor for many libraries.

The Free Version Of SurveyMonkey Limits the Creator To 10 Questions
Only [:-(

Hence ... I Could Not Include All The Questions I would Have Wished To Ask [:-<

[Including Yours]
