Libraries of all types and sizes can develop meaningful engagement with their patrons through social media. Join the 2018 Pennsylvania Library Association’s Academy of Leadership Studies (PALS) Social Media Project Team to learn how to get started with or improve your library’s presence on social media through the development of a social media policy, selecting the right platforms for your audience, and resources to help you create interesting content. This webinar will address both academic and public library contexts, and the social media considerations unique to each environment. We will also introduce new best practices documents and templates for libraries created by the team over the past year as a service project for The Pennsylvania Library Association and its members.

This project is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, Governor.
