Library marketing Through Social Networking Sites
Most of the Indian Libraries are still the "Store Houses". Now there is a great need to market the Library Products and Services to attract, and aware the users. In Lack of spreading awareness among the users for Library Products and Services the usage is very less.
Library marketing will promote the Library and Library Product & services usage manyfold.
By using the Social networking sites, free sites etc. Libraries, and Library professional should reach to their users, provide awareness, orientations, tutorials so that both can hold their importance among their users.
You are absolute right,
Because the users need is very important, in addition to traditional methods we should promote our library resource using different sources like facebook, twitter, blogger etc.,
In academic library it is very very needed because the users are very fast and update with internet.

Thank you all for good response.
In lack of library resources and services exposure, the users cannot utilize the resources to maximum extent. Our Library (Central University of Himachal Pradesh) on completion on its five years, has not organized Library orientation even single time. Due to this E-resources subscription of Science Direct were stopped by INFLIBNET. So the libraries should take some initiative to improve its services.
