James Fishwick set up a bunch of Web 2.0 utilities for the Bodleian Oriental Institute Library in the summer of 2009, all working together and feeding into each other. The OIL's main webpage http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/oil was changed at the same time – the RSS feed from the Blog powers the “News” box in the bottom right corner of the website.

In Summer 2010 James added a few new toys- he started putting new books onto LibraryThing, and then set up a Twitter feed combining the LibraryThing and the Blog.

When we switched over to ALEPH in Summer 2011 we stopped getting new books reports, so the LibraryThing catalogue died.

In June 2012 James left OIL, and Katie Guest took over the OIL social media presence.

Wordpress Blog
We’ve been using the blog to talk about big projects going on in the library, fill people in with our news. Also to announce the start/end of vacation borrowing, mention any closed days, plus to promote talks/exhibitions.

Our Facebook page, with all the normal sort of stuff. Whenever we update the blog we then update the Facebook.
As of June 2012 it has 198 likes.

Updating our Facebook automatically updates our Twitter. Which is good.
As of June 2012 it has 125 followers.

Someone called Rivendell added a load of Oxford libraries to Library Thing. James claimed the OIL page (it's very simple), and put our basic info up there along with links to our main webpage and our Facebook page.
In Summer 2010 we started uploading new acquisitions to LibraryThing at http://www.librarything.com/catalog/oiloxford. We stopped when ALEPH came in, and we didn't get new books reports any more.

Our LibGuide uses the RSS feed from our Blog in the right-hand column on our "Home" and "Projects" pages, ensuring our latest news gets broadcast far and wide! The same happens on our website, http://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/oil
