Cultivating Authentic Engagement: Outreach from Start to Finish Sunday, May 4, 8:30am - 12:30pm
This workshop will cover various approaches and strategies for working with specific populations across our campuses. Outreach encompasses many areas, from marketing and promotion of library resources and services to coordinated communication messaging, all with the end-goal of engaging with various campus and/or community populations. While we acknowledge that there is not a singular approach that will work for all libraries, the three presenters will guide attendees through inspirational and practical outreach methods that may be effective at their home institutions. Presenters: Kristen Mastel, Erin Dorney & Selene Colburn Cost: $50 Event Info: http://sched.co/1hKjz8l
