Does your library need Facebook or Twitter?
Anyone can set up a Facebook or Twitter account, but do you really know how to get the most out of them? All too often, libraries jump into the social media arena without a full grasp of what doing so really means. Do you understand what people expect from you in these environments? Does your library have a well-crafted social media policy? Maximize the staff time spent on these tools by getting a solid foundation in effective social media use.

Before You Attend:
To listen during the Wimba event, you must have one of the following:
1. Computer with speakers or headphones: This will allow you to listen during the session. You can use the text chat feature to ask questions or make comments.
2. Computer with speakers and a microphone: This will allow you to both listen and speak during the session. Many people use a headset that has a built-in microphone.
3. Computer and a telephone: If your computer does not have speakers and/or a microphone, you can still listen and speak during the session by calling into the Wimba classroom. The phone number and required pin number will be provided in the email. Note: The phone number is long distance and toll charges may apply.
