Academic libraries play a critical role in supporting teaching, learning and research in higher institutions. Libraries should provide access to educational resources in varying formats. Adopting mobile technologies for social media based library services in developing countries has not yet been fully explored. This article reports on the possibility of adopting mobile technologies for social media based library services at the Wisconsin International University College, Ghana.
