I have a Twitter account for my school libraries @VPAALibraries - but Twitter is blocked at school, so I update from home or my cell phone when possible to send out news, book recommendations, etc... it's a slow start, but at least it's a start...
I have been using Twitter for a while to add quick news to our library website - the account is @Library_Online
However, most of the followers are other school librarians! I don't really think that teens in the UK are very interested in Twitter - the demographic is people in their 20s & 30s - or even oldies like me!
Mansfield University Scholarship Program – Begin in January 2012
In an ongoing effort to recruit a new generation of school library leaders, Mansfield University recently received a fifth Institute of Library and Museum Services (IMLS) grant to fund scholarships for its totally online School Library & Information Technologies Master of Education degree program with school library certification. If you know of an educator or non-certified librarian seeking school library certification, please pass along the news that we are still accepting applications for the spring 2012 semester.
The Master of Education program, ideally suited for working educators
with no time to drive to a university, offers a convenient and effective path to school library certification. For detailed information and contacts please refer to the Fulfilling the Promise homepage, at http://libweb.mansfield.edu/promise/, or contact Cynthia Keller, Department Chair firstname.lastname@example.org
