Libraries on the Vine
"Libraries are using Vine to create clips that highlight new book and media acquisitions, advertise events, showcase makerspaces and 3D printers, and instruct patrons on library features. The moving images give these promotions a vibrancy that's not feasible in text-heavy social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. "The connections that come out of one unique item like a [stop-motion] film of racks filling up with new magazines are interesting."
