Myspace Guidelines

The Library has had a Myspace page since our Learning 2.0 program. Part of the duties for my new position is to create goals and guidelines for all of the Library’s social networking sites. When I started writing the Myspace Guidelines I was surprised to find despite the proliferation of Libraries with Myspace pages, I could find only one with a policy. The Guidelines have been approved and MRRL’s Myspace page is official!

The administrator of the Library’s Myspace page will follow these guidelines in addition to the Library’s Public Service Policies

Purpose
• Connect with teens, authors and pertinent adults
• Promote library programs, events and services through blogging and bulletins

Content
• Information about library programs, events and services
• Materials owned by the library
• Information about authors and their works
• Links to other webpage. As a social networking site, links will be made to pages created by people outside the Library; the Library has no control over the content of those pages.

Comments
• All comments will be held for approval by the administrator
• Comments deemed inappropriate for a public space will not be approved
• Comments containing html that may interfere with the layout of the page will not be approved
• Advertisement or promotional comments must be under 10 lines and are subject to the approval of the administrator

Friends
• Friends are subject to approval by the administrator
• The Library reserves the right to approve or deny friends
