Do you need to update your library's marketing and publicity to take better advantage of new and emerging media and networks?

This course will examine new media and platforms, ranging from simple tools like blogs, video, and qr codes to more complex platforms like Google services, mobile communities, and social networking sites. It will help you sort through the options, identify which ones will help you meet your strategic and community goals, and help you design a plan to integrate your efforts effectively.

All course participants will leave with practical experience with the tools and platforms examined, and will craft an integrated social media strategy for their library as a course project.
