David McDonald: Use of Social Media and mobile technologies in libraries – particularly small special libraries


My name is David McDonald – Systems and Library Technology Manager at the Nova Scotia Legislative Library.

My library’s primary function is to serve the information needs of the elected representatives of the Province of Nova Scotia. Our legislature was the first in Canada to tweet the happenings of the House. To date that’s all we’ve really been able to to do. We have to be very careful what we post as we must remain non-partisan (neutral).

We’re finding that more and more of our primary clientele are using mobile phones. We need to find a better way to deliver our products and services to them in a mobile environment.
