So you've got a handle on the social software stuff, what's next?

How do libraries position themselves where patrons are actually looking?

How can libraries put tools where patrons want them?

Join us for another engaging program featuring five pace-setters
innovating at the edge of new library services! They will focus on
examples of how and why libraries need to think beyond "marketing &
advocacy" to a new level of findability, usability, and service. It is a
future moving towards full integration of the library into users'


web practices.
