Building Bridges: Effective Internal Advocacy and Marketing in Libraries

May 14, 2024 at 11:00am

Resources and support are essential to accomplishing not only overall library goals but also the goals of individual departments, librarians, and staff. In this webinar, Taira Meadowcroft and Megan Ballengee will share strategies for successfully advocating for your position and/or unit. Learn how to communicate your needs to administrators and to undertake an internal marketing campaign to promote your value and build networks within the library. Whether a manager or not, everyone in a library can be an advocate for their own work and for the mission of the library.
