Līve-brary.com is the Digital Branch for Suffolk public libraries’ electronic and online shared services. This digital branch employs social media and other web apps to feature library-created content and push or feed that content to users. Because the content is dynamic, it continually changes keeping the user interested and encouraging return visits.
You can think of Līve-brary.com as a department store with many products for sale inside. If you want to buy shoes, coats, furniture, and linens, you could go to four individual stores. Each store has to advertise and market to you, and you have to travel all over to find and buy everything you need. Or, you could go to Macy’s, where you can get these items under one roof. Macy’s only has to market their brand once, and you find their goods once you go there.
