Some useful guides to creating a social media policy

A social media policy is becoming a must-have for libraries and, luckily, there has been a recent flux of guides to help get started. As more and more libraries make use of social networking tools, it’s important that this use is planned and managed alongside (and within where necessary) other library policies.

The Social Media Examiner1 has published an extensive guide to creating business guidelines for social media. This nicely complements the recent 23 Things Oxford workshop and the subsequent guide to writing and managing a social media policy.

For more specific advice, there’s Beyond Slice Bread’s guide to giving your library a Twitter makeover (and also masses of other advice to be found on this blog).

This is not a complete list (yet!) but definitely a few places to get started.
