Customer Success, Social Media for Libraries

Looking to up your library's social media game? One of the best ways to engage followers to is to provide a consistent stream of fun/useful content. Understanding that libraries don't always have the time to generate all of the content they'd like, we're here to help! 

Below you will find daily posts, all under Twitter’s 280-character limit, that you can copy/paste at your leisure, each linking to a Topic Page, which, for Credo Online Reference Services subscribers can be a gateway to all kinds of e-resources.This content is free for the taking, no character-eating attribution to us necessary!
