U of T iSchool Symposium
October 3-4, 2016
Social Media and Public Libraries:
A New Agenda for Promoting Library Value and Impact
University of Toronto iSchool Symposium in partnership with Dysart & Jones Associates
Exciting things are happening in our Ontario public library marketing spaces!
Brush up and learn more at this symposium.
2016 promises to be a big year for public libraries as we work to improve funders' and our communities' perceptions of the value and impact of our sector.
Did you know . . .?
Ontario Public Libraries need to build a collaborative response to emphasize our value and impact in our communities as we discussed at the Libraries 2020 and 2025 summits.
If these issues challenge your management team, then this is the symposium for you to explore new ways to develop your organizations' marketing strategies for the coming years to address our future challenges.
Please join us or send someone from your system to this event on Oct. 3rd and 4th.
Other innovators will be video-conferenced in as well
