  2. NYPL at BEA

    If you are at BEA this morning, swing by for “Building a Social Library,” our panel discussion at 10:30 am in 1E09.

    Here’s more:

    Take a look deep inside The New York Public Library, the most recognized social media library, and how they have built their extensive community and serve their readers.

    As collections increasingly turn digital and eBooks become ubiquitous, libraries are also changing how they connect with patrons. The New York Public Library, one of the largest in the United States, has become the number one public library in the world in social media, leveraging staff and social tools to connect hundreds of thousands of users with its collections and services.

    This educational session will transform their secrets of social media success into easy to understand campaign tactics that will benefit marketing plans for libraries, publishers, booksellers and authors too!
