One of the basic responsibilities of libraries to their users is the provision of timely information. Traditionally, such a goal is achieved through the employment of statistical methods such as the measurement of the items’ circulation and through the log file analysis capturing the searches users perform against the OPAC and other online library services. However, such methods focus on the analysis of user transactions over a certain period of time and therefore provide insight into the past. On the other hand, social media seem capable of providing timely information in a more direct way. In this paper, an experimental web service is deployed capable of integrating popular Twitter hashtags with the library’s OPAC.
