Library MySpace Study

Take a look at this MySpace profile: Library MySpace Study. It is by two LIS students and they are using MySpace to, well, study MySpace. Their “About Me:”

Hello, this is Kelly and Lisa. We are graduate students in Library and Information Science at Dominican University in River Forest, IL. We are doing a study on public libraries with MySpace profiles for our Research Methods class with Prof. Kate Williams. Our research plan is to look at public library MySpace profiles to see how libraries are using MySpace to interact with patrons. We will send out interview surveys via MySpace email to a random sample of library profiles. Check out our MySpace blog for updates and information as our study develops. Feel free to leave us comments, questions and suggestions!

They’ve already friended a number of libraries and have a bibliography about MySpace and Libraries.
