The Design and Marketing for Libraries course will teach students how to market their library to send positive messages, advocate, promote, and engage with their users. This course is for librarians and library staff of any type (public, academic, etc.) that are responsible for or involved with promoting the library via social media and other engagement tools.
As records of firsthand accounts, primary sources reveal something about their creators and cultural context, which can lead to a transformative classroom experience in person or virtually. Over the last year and a half, librarians who teach with primary sources have been challenged to find new and inventive ways of enabling students to engage with primary sources virtually. This webcast will explore the work of teaching with digital primary sources and discuss the challenges and opportunities that the COVID-19 pandemic has created for this type of teaching.
