The Big HUGE List of FB Groups for Librarians

Are you a Facebook user? Want to get more Library into your Facebook?

Making it Happen (Librarians, this is about you) recently published The Big HUGE List of FB Groups for Librarians compiled by the 5 Minute Librarian. The list is long, and just offers a snapshot of the groups out there (I myself are a member of a few).

The full list is, as the title indicates, a little long, so I have selected a few ones that may be of interest to ALLA(WA) members. 

eLearning in Libraries

This is a group for anyone who is interested in developing e-learning for library purposes. We will share ideas and engage in discussion about e-learning. Public, academic, school, and special library staff are all encouraged to join. E-learning can include screencasts, tutorials, videos, and any other training delivered in an online format, and may be for library staff or patrons.

League of Librarian Gamers – for Librarians who Play

A group for librarians who play games of all kinds – board games, card games, RPGs, video games, tabletop games, Magic: the Gathering, miniatures, dice games, classic games. If you’re a Librarian, and you play games, join this group!

Libraries & Social Media

This is a group for anyone working professionally in social media for their library, or those curious about what it’s like.

Library Coffee Shop Talk

Enjoy your hot beverage and enjoy a light virtual conversation with other library minded folks.

Library Related People

This is a Facebook group that welcomes all library related people. If you work in any library related capacity, intend to do so, or are plain interested we want you!

The Shareable Clique

A Facebook Group for libraries and book lovers to share their viral content that can be re-shared on other Facebook accounts. What works well at your library that may work well at other libraries? Share your successes, increase your outreach, and help other libraries build their audiences!

Troublesome Catalogers and Magical Metadata Fairies

A place for cataloguers, metadata librarians, and those who admire them. Grab your wands and raise some Hell. ;c)
