I en undersökning som redovisa i The Chronicle of Higher Education
påstås att sociala medier har blivit högsta mode bland forskare inom
humaniora och samhällsvetenskap. Biblioteken uppmanas vara upp-
Eighty-four percent of social scientists who took part in the survey
reported using social-media tools in their research; the figure for arts
and humanities was 79.2 percent, for the biological sciences, 78.3
percent; and for the health sciences, 74.8 percent.
Librarians ought to be especially concerned by what's coming out in
these discussions of social-media use, Mr. Nicholas said, because
"nobody is talking about librarians' being involved at all in this."
The academic use of such tools may leave libraries out in the cold,
he said. "There's a lot of soul-searching that needs to be done on
the part of librarians, because this is their constituency."
