• Marketing the 21st Century Libraries -- Developing Successful Partnerships, focus on three case studies by Debra Lucas-Alfieri.
At a time when many libraries are losing its captive audiences to the internet, to shrinking print collections and a reduction in their campus footprints, some organizations are thriving. I will emphasize the information gathered from onsite visits to Drexel University, Rutgers University, and the University of Texas at San Antonio. Here, partnerships forged the way.
This research was conducted to write the forthcoming text book, "Marketing the 21st Century Libraries: The Time is Now".
• Memorable Connections: Using Marketing to Engage by Chris Davidson.
In an era where students have no idea what librarians offer, how can we mix marketing materials with engagement activities to change hearts and minds and bring more students to take advantage of the library's services?
• Student 2 Student Library Marketing: A Success Story Starting with Some <3 by Joyce Garczynski.
Are you looking to get students more involved in shaping your marketing and outreach efforts? If you are like me and my library you know that it can be a struggle to get started, especially figuring out which students to work with and how to best utilize their talents. This short presentation will address how we successfully integrated three student leaders into our promotional efforts and what we learned along the way.
• Social media contests as a tool for raising student awareness: the good, the bad and the ugly by Anne Peters.
We all know that social media is a great tool for student engagement, but the busy playing field and mysterious algorithms equal fierce competition for their attention. Contests are one way to break through the clutter. This presentation will cover some of the joys and pitfalls of running contests via Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, providing easy-to-implement ideas you can try out at your own library.
