I am doing an advocacy webinar jointly for Gale Cengage Learning and the SirsiDynix Institute that we advertised on the buses to the Hill in DC at ALA.
You can register for the free webinar here:
As promised at the event on Capitol Hill in D.C. at ALA Annual 2010, SirsiDynix and Gale Cengage Learning present a webinar on advocating for libraries. Advocacy has two main goals – to promote the library and to gain support, funding and endorsement of libraries’ roles in our communities and society. Stephen Abram has been involved in both, internationally, for his entire career. This session will explore both tried and true methods as well as some of the emerging strategies that are gaining traction. As the world of information and technology changes rapidly, it is even more critical that libraryland positions itself well for the future. Libraries matter.
Now, more than ever, it’s essential that libraries advocate for what we believe in.
