The Top 20 Most Popular iLibrarian Posts of 2012 – Pt. 2

This is part two of a two-part post to present the top 20 most viewed and tweeted articles on iLibrarian. (See part one here!) The statistics represent page views and tweets from the week the post was published, not from the entire year. In the spirit of the holidays, this is arranged countdown style, and since this is the second post, this one starts with number 10.

Note: The abbreviation UPV’s stands for unique page views, meaning that if someone visits a post 20 times, it’s still only counted as 1 *unique* page view.
