Libraries have many options of services to store and share digital assets, including many from library automation vendors. Instead of looking at library vendors, one option is to use a photo sharing resource such as Flickr (from yahoo.com). From a very active Flickr user, this presentation will showcase how you can use this free resource to promote, organize and share your digital assets. Of particular note is using Flickr groups and tagging to make items from your collection accessible and findable by community residents as well as people all over the world.

Outreach is critical for engaging with those who need our library services, especially when they are under-prepared or a member of a student population with unique needs. Making these connections doesn’t magically happen but requires thoughtful consideration and planning! This webinar will guide you through the process of creating an engagement plan that strategically improves and invigorates your current outreach and campus collaborations. We will discuss several stages of creating an engagement plan, from the initial stage of identifying student populations with whom to connect through the final stage of impact assessment.
