#IRCShelfie Tuesday

Have you been following #IRCShelfie on Twitter and IRC Pinterest this term? A new collection of shelfies will begin posting on Tuesday starting again in January. Interested in a particular IRC or library shelf collection?  Tweet your shelfie suggestion to @ircaulibrary.

About #IRCShelfie Tuesday

What's a shelfie? It is a photo of a book shelf - or shelves - most often taken with a smart phone and shared on social media. They may be taken in conjunction with selfies, for instance people sharing their book shelves in a selfie, but often the book shelf is shared solo. Following in the footsteps of the Twitter hash tag #shelfie, the IRC has been sharing #IRCshelfies on Twitter.


Each Tuesday, a new #IRCshelfie is posted sharing a shelf from a different IRC or library second floor collection. As of July 1st, fourteen #IRCshelfies have been shared via the @IRCaulibrary. Not on Twitter? No worries, you can follow the IRC shelfie collection on Pinterest. The following Wednesday, #IRCshelfie pictures are posted to the IRC Pinterest board #IRCshelfie @IRCaulibrary. Pins are dated and link back to the original tweet.

Follow IRC's board #IRCshelfie @IRCaulibrary on Pinterest.
