Our presence on Twitter (@wienerlibrary) has steadily grown over the past several years to include over 4,000 followers. We make an effort to tweet several times every day on a variety of subjects that may be of interest to our users and the general public. Topics include updates on opening hours, events, exhibitions, workshops, and collection highlights, as well as external conferences, partnership information, and subject-related national/international news.

We also engage in national and international social media campaigns, including #explorearchives, #AskACurator Day, and #AskAnArchivist Day. Read the blog posts about our involvement in #AskACurator Day on 17 September 2014 and 16 September 2015 to see some of the highlights.

To mark the week of Holocaust Memorial Day 2016, the Wiener Library hosted its fourth annual Social Media Debate. This year’s topic was: “How should hashtags be used on the topic of the Holocaust and other genocides?”
