Recording available: NPSIG Library 2.013 training session on library advocacy

On Oct 19, NPSIG presented a training session on how to become a library advocate at the all-virtual Library 2.013 conference. Molly Schwartz, NPSIG co-convenor, shared some excellent strategies for promoting the profession, such as:

  1. Have three LIS-related issues that you are passionate about that you can use to illustrate the relevance of libraries- bonus points if you can include metrics to prove your points
  2. Be clear, succinct, and specific in communicating the value of libraries
  3. Take every opportunity to promote and advocate for libraries- don’t just brush off opportunities to talk about libraries because you’re at a dinner party!

We are happy to share the recording of the session – both available in video and audio formats.  Enjoy!
