Libraries Thriving Webinar Series
Libraries Thriving/Credo Reference
Feel like you’re using social media on behalf of your library “just because” and to an unresponsive audience? Think of a great party host. They plan the party and provide a welcoming space. Maybe they even incentivize you to attend and participate. Great hosts also take the time to check how their guests are doing, respond to needs and complaints, and adjust the party to accommodate future attendees. Learn how one library revamped its social media by thinking like a socialite party host. Katy Kelly, Communications and Outreach Librarian at University of Dayton, Dayton, Ohio, will describe her use of Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, and Instagram on behalf of Roesch Library to embrace the student-created nickname, Club Roesch.
