Pinterest is growing rapidly in social media, and libraries have begun to make their presence known. Many are sharing their new and current collections, programs and items they find interesting in general. The Research & Instruction Librarians at Murray State University have taken this a step further by working to build a virtual research library of free, credible online resources.

This session will discuss how the project developed, steps we took in setting it up, how it is being evaluated, and where we are thus far in our research to determine if there is an acceptable return on investment in building such a library.
