The LDC in collaboration with Lawbore will be leading this session. Your facilitators for the day will be Neal Sumner, Emily Allbon and Ajmal Sultany.

This hands on session will give you the opportunity to learn more about the use of Twitter and blogging for your research; how to make use social bookmarking and referencing tools to work more effectively; and the best practices for interacting in social networks such as academia.edu and Linkedin.
