Abstract

Institution as Social Media Collector: Lessons Learned from the Library of Congress

Social media has become a valuable tool that has helped connect, facilitate, discover, and encourage use of the Library of Congress’s collections and content. The Library has cultivated trust and approachability as both a collector and user of social media. As a result, the institution is more accessible than ever before.
