The use of social networking sites has been significant among academic libraries. Although various studies have investigated the use of social media platforms, studies that analyze the use of Instagram by academic libraries are still limited. This study investigates and analyzes academic libraries’ Instagram posts and presents a categorization scheme to group these posts. The Cronbach α was also used as a measure to test the reliability of the categorization scheme proposed in this study. Results showed that posts of library news and information were the largest category at 29%.
