FlatCat Social Media Project
The UK Libraries' Social Media Workgroup has come up with what we think is a great idea!
The idea is based on the Flat Stanley literacy project (http://www.flatstanley.com/). We've created our own UK version of Flat Stanley, called Flat Cat. We're going to encourage students to take pictures of themselves with Flat Cat and post them to our Facebook page. The image template (PDF) is available on the page (https://www.facebook.com/uklibraries) but we would also like to encourage campus library locations to make paper copies available at service desks. See the attached photo of the display Jen Martin has set up for Young.
In addition to helping improve the utility of the Facebook page, it's also just a fun way to engage students with the library!
Thank you! -Social Media group (Ruth Bryan, Jan Carver, Susan Foster-Harper, Beth Kraemer, Jen Martin, Kopana Terry)
