Hot Topic: Engagement Basics Webinar – Session 1
August 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
Transformation that increases engagement — A moment of library opportunity. A chance to change public perceptions and establish library as an essential service, like Fire, Water, and Transportation. But what does engagement mean? And how do we increase it? Better yet, how do we measure it and communicate intelligible results to our funding agencies? Join Aldelphi Outreach and Promotion Librarian, Tatiana Bryant, and Innovative Business of Library Consultants for an introductory survey of engagement measures and real world examples of how early adopters are using these techniques in their library. Walk away prepared to foster discussions in your library and start the move toward concerted, measurable ways to increase engagement.
