Library Technology Reports (vol.50, no.7) Librarians have always curated. Today, as human filters, librarians address the proverbial Internet fire house. This issue of Library Technology Reports (vol.50, no.7), "Social Media Curation," considers curation as it is popularly applied to activities that leverage the power of social media to collect, organize, share, and interpret content to tell a digital story for a specific audience. It provides a snapshot of the state of digital curation using social media across libraryland and shares ideas from a few social media curation thought leaders slightly beyond the library community. It presents new models for practitioners. And it offers a springboard from which further exploration of these efforts can emerge and be studied.
