7. Encouraging participation - the importance of nagging

Gentle reminders need to be sent out periodically after the initial announcement.

A collection of announcements can be found in the Templates & Graphics section of this primer. 

Ask participating libraries to post a link from their library’s home page to the “Snapshot Day” results page.  The buttons featured below can be downloaded from the “Tips” section of N.J.’s “Snapshot Day” webpage.
