Separate registration is required for each hour-long session.
Blogs and social networking tools enable libraries to market resources, educate users, and build community relationships. To be effective, however, libraries must have a content strategy, schedule, and guidelines. In this session you will learn about the strategic planning techniques two libraries – dramatically different in size and staff – are using to maximize the impact of these tools while minimizing the workload of generating quality content.

What is your library brand? Do you have one? What about your own brand? Do you “Google” yourself? How do you know if your social media presence is effective? Do you have digital credibility? We’ll explore tools to cultivate a digital identity, branding, and ways to evaluate social media effectiveness.
