Visual Bookmarking with Pinterest
Pinterest is similar to earlier image and social bookmarking tools, allowing users to save images and then categorize them on different boards. Users can follow other pinners boards, re-pin pins and like pins. The number of libraries using Pinterest is growing, this short presentation will cover what is Pinterest and how your library might use it to promote services and collections.
