I'm Tweeting on the Inside: A Case Study in Small-Scale Social Media

Social media has proven itself as a powerful tool for connecting with your library patrons and building a sense of community. But what if you're not able to use it to promote your library? Maybe your supervisor isn't a fan of Twitter, or the library board isn't sold on the value of a Facebook page. This webinar presents a case study of how librarians who can't promote using social media at their libraries can still utilize it to make a difference and connect with their library communities.

Learning Outcomes

In this webinar, participants will learn how to use social media to:

-connect with other librarians and share information and programming ideas

-create a brand for yourself among your patrons and professional community

-use what social media you have access to to connect with your teens
