First Facebook, now Twitter


For quite a while we’ve been posting announcements of an ephemeral nature to Facebook, and now there’s a Twitter feed you can follow to receive the same content. Check out the two icons in the upper right portion of this page for quick links to these pages (located just above the search box).

Follow either of these information sources for news of…

  • new posts on our blog,
  • colloquia,
  • guest speakers,
  • special events,
  • library and technology tutorials,
  • new exhibits,
  • special acquisitions, and
  • occasional news items from out-of-the-way sources that we think Collections researchers may find useful and interesting.

Longer messages, or information of more lasting value, will still be posted to this blog, but we have decided that there is a place for more compact notices, particularly of imminent opportunities, links and events.

Last week, as we were taking steps to clean up following the much-publicized Oklahoma earthquakes, we felt that we missed the opportunity to use a Twitter account to notify you when the stacks were re-opened. That experience prompted us to finally enter the Twitter universe with the moniker @ouhoscurator.

If you already follow us on Facebook, we expect the content to be identical – all tweets are automatically posted to our Facebook page – so just follow whichever method is most convenient for you.

Also of special interest: Follow @OULibrarian for additional notices regarding the University of Oklahoma Libraries (also: website, Facebook).
