Rivier University Libraries -- Social Media Policy

Founded in 1933 by the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary and Sister Madeleine of Jesus, Rivier University is a Catholic institution of higher education dedicated to transforming hearts and minds to serve the world. River University libraries support this mission and the University’s efforts to:

"educate the whole person in the context of an academic community that cultivates critical thought, sound judgment and respect for all people. This community supports the intellectual growth of all its members while offering them opportunities for social, cultural, moral and spiritual development."

Our social media supports the Libraries’ and University’s missions, and will comply with the Rivier University Social Media Guidelines. Posts to library social media accounts are intended to inform, engage, and sustain our community: Rivier University students, alumni, and prospective students; faculty and staff; the greater academic community around the world; and our peers at other libraries. We have a particular interest in growing a group of library and reading enthusiasts at Rivier University.  

Our social media will:

1. Inform our community of things happening at our libraries and in the world of books and information. We are particularly committed to creating, sharing and liking posts related to: 

  • services, resources, and events at the Rivier Libraries and around campus 
  • books and media 
  • the joy of reading 
  • lifelong learning 
  • the library world 

2. Engage with our community and the greater academic library world, building a social community of people with a passion for libraries as well as the written and spoken word. 

3. Sustain our community by connecting people and resources.
