Abstract

The chapter discusses the emerging social media and its impact on libraries and information professionals. The chapter reveals that because of the fluidity and convenience of these tools, users all over the world have embraced their usages, gingering libraries and information professionals to adopt them or become irrelevant. The authors highlight how libraries can use these tools, the advantages inherent in using them, and possible challenges that may crop up with their use. The chapter concludes by recommending the inclusion of these tools in library plans, policies, and work schedule of library staff.
