Current Issue: Volume 13, Issue 1 (2017) Libraries on social media: connecting with your communities

The articles in this issue range from a broad survey of library social media use in New York State which sets the background and highlights common concerns, to practical observations drawn from several more specific situations which illustrate possible answers to some of the concerns raised in the survey. The overall message of the issue might be that while specific variables differ, our overall goals and many of the strategies for achieving them are quite similar.
