Khaldoon M. O. AL_Dwairi


This study dealt with Jordanian specialized libraries’ presentation of their services through the social media website Facebook. The aims were to identify how Jordanian specialized libraries use social media sites, to describe their services and characteristics and to analyze comments on the advertisement boards of their social media websites. Data were collected from four libraries pages on Facebook. One of the most important findings of the study is that the four libraries had added the social media icon to their Internet pages. Three libraries specified their opening hours and holiday closing, Amman Chamber of Commerce library, the library of Zarqa branch of the Jordanian Engineers’ Association and the library of the Shmaisani branch of the Jordanian Engineers’ Association. All these libraries used Arabic on their Facebook pages.
