Best of Publib on Facebook

Happy post 4th! 

We set up a BestofPublib group on Facebook to help us administer content and have a central communication structure for contributors.  The group is closed in order to keep out spam, but librarians and those employed or interested in libraries are welcome as members.   You will need to set up a Facebook account, before you can apply.

The following categories proposed for BestofPublb messages are loosely based on LCSH – most will match topical headings in:

http://id.loc.gov/authorities/search/

So logic for inclusion and creation of subcategories can be made through that search.

Please let us know what you think and if you see the need for any additions or deletions – these will appear in the left hand column:
