Social Media Policy
The North Carolina Digital Heritage Center uses social media to connect with users and partners, share information, and promote the collections available online at DigitalNC.org. Current social media tools used by the Center include:
- DigitalNC Blog
The Digital North Carolina Blog includes announcements about new partners and new additions to DigitalNC, news and updates from the Digital Heritage Center, and highlights from the collections.
The Digital Heritage Center uses Facebook to share blog posts and other updates and to connect with partner institutions.
The Digital Heritage Center Flickr collection includes selected photos from DigitalNC, primarily from the newspaper and yearbook collections.
http://digitalnc.tumblr.com/ and http://wilsonlibunc.tumblr.com/
The Digital Heritage Center posts photos both to its own tumblr and collaboratively to the Wilson Library tumblr, in an effort to highlight partner materials and to represent its affiliation with the North Carolina Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The Digital Heritage Center uses Twitter to share highlights from the DigitalNC collections and to connect with other digital library programs in North Carolina and beyond.
Regarding etiquette and post moderation, the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center adheres to UNC Libraries’ social media policy.
Regarding the posting of materials, the Center’s partners have sole authority to determine how materials from their collections are displayed and shared online. Partners may opt out of having their materials included in the Center’s social media outreach at any time, either as a whole or with reference to specific images.
Whenever possible, social media posts featuring materials from DigitalNC will credit the owning institution and link back to the original item at DigitalNC.org.
Any questions and comments received through social media outlets will be forwarded to the appropriate partner institution.
