Social media basics: Engaging your library users
http://www.ala.org/news/press-releases/2014/10/social-media-basics-engaging-your-library-users Managing Traditional & Social Media for Libraries
Use of Social Media in the Library
Social media has the potential to facilitate much closer relationships between libraries and their patrons. Current usage of social media by the library community generally remains ad hoc and somewhat experimental, but the uptake of these tools is accelerating, and they will likely play an increasingly important role in library service provision and outreach in the future. Taylor & Francis has produced a white paper that analyzes current practices relating social media’s use in the library and how this differs by librarian job role. The sample was taken from academic librarians around the world, which also allows us to examine differences by geographic location. The goal: to establish how librarians are currently using social media in their roles, the most useful social media tools and best applications for these tools in a library setting.

In age of Social Media U.S. libraries encourage users to choose privacy
http://www.ala.org/news/news/pressreleases2010/april2010/privacy_pio User-Generated Content in Library Discovery Systems
With the widespread use of library technology that incorporates social media components, intelligent objects, and knowledge-sharing tools comes the ability of libraries to provide greater opportunities for patron engagement in those discovery systems through user-generated content. These features may include the ability of users to contribute commentary such as reviews, simple point-and-click rating systems (e.g. one star to five stars), or to engage in extensive discussions or other social interactions. This kind of content could transform authoritative files, alter information architecture, and change the flow of information within the library discovery system.
Across generations, concerns for privacy may dissipate with time as specific technologies take hold or as people become aware of a technology’s benefits and value those over their value for privacy.
Library Privacy Guidelines for Students in K-12 Schools
my note: excellent blueprint for similar activities / policies at higher ed.
it is a hot topic [and contested] topic at MnSCU, considering ADA. In the MnSCU case, it is video and audio material, here, it is text based. The crowdsourcing idea applies, though…

Subject: Re: [lita-l] Crowdsourced transcription tool?
Scripto looks like an interesting project.
On Thu, Sep 10, 2015 at 8:31 AM, Kathryn Frederick (Library) <
We recently had preservation work done on a number of 16
th – 18 th century land patents. We will be digitizing them, and would like to transcribe the documents which are hand-written in English and, in some cases, Latin.
Is anyone aware of a tool that would allow us to crowdsource the transcription?
Thanks for any suggestions,

If you’re interested in a fully hosted solution, you might also check out
http://beta.fromthepage.com/. The underlying software is open source and you can install it locally as well.
Ben Brumfield, the guy who developed FromThePage also has a blog,
http://manuscripttranscription.blogspot.com/, which has some useful information about different systems.
