Welcome to the Oxford Libraries Social Media/Web 2.0 Wiki!


This wiki is designed to be a source of information about the use of social media and web 2.0 tools in Oxford libraries. It replaces the previous incarnation, and is intended to be a place for Oxford librarians both to find information and to share their experiences.

Navigating the wiki


The wiki is arranged into the following sections
  • Social media/web 2.0 tools: general information about sites and services, how they can be and are being used in libraries outside of Oxford.
  • Oxford case studies: information on what various Oxford libraries are or have been doing, and what they have found successful or otherwise. A good source of tips!
  • Issues and guidelines: lots of information about things you should consider before you get started and as you continue using these sites and tools. Covers strategy, legal things, privacy, copyright, intellectual property and technical considerations.
  • Resources: useful links to sites and articles for further reading.

Need help?


The **Oxford 23 Things blog** contains step-by-step instructions to getting started with most sites, how to make the most of them and how to link them all together so it saves you time and effort. This blog was set up for the Oxford 23 Things programme which ran during Hilary Term 2010, and continued for the 23 Things Summer Camp the following summer.

If you can't find what you need there or on this wiki, feel free to contact the helpful team of librarians via email at 23things@bodleian.ox.ac.uk. Emails will be answered by one of Jane, Laura, Angela, Penny or James.
