Social media allows you to scale up a core librarian practice-connecting your community to information and learning--across geographic boundaries, 24/7. Addressing "e;curation"e; as the term is used colloquially, this issue of Library Technology Reports draws from 17 in-depth interviews to show how libraries are using social media to collect, organize, share, and interpret-in short, how to tell a digital story to a specific audience. Additionally the authors use data, collected through an online survey that encompassed all library types, to offer a snapshot of this important "e;collecting-connecting-curating-contributing"e; practice. Also included is an annotated directory covering 66 tools for social media curation, organized by category with links to the websites.
