Level Up on LinkedIn

When it comes to your career, sometimes, who you know it just as important as what you know, and LinkedIn is certainly a tool that can help job seekers with that. 

But, you might say, I'm not looking for a job right now! Well, our "Level-Up Lab" (which is free, by the way) isn't just for job seekers. And, it's presented by a librarian for librarians and library staff. Learn more about how, with this professional networking tool, you can help your organization and your patrons. 

After all, many of your patrons may well be job seekers -- and in a time when libraries often tout their ability to be a resource for those seeking employment, learning more about LinkedIn can help you to help them. But LinkedIn can help your library, too. 

LinkedIn lessons can teach you how to better leverage the platform for your organization, keep professional information up to date, and help you build a professional network for sharing ideas and staying out of "silos". 

Our presenter, Donald Crews, apart from being a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach and a recognized presenter on job searching and business, is also a librarian himself. That means Donald is poised to give you LinkedIn lessons that matter to job hunters, and lessons that you as a library employee can really use in your everyday work life.

As mentioned, SWON's Level-Up Labs are free, but space is very limited. So register today for our event, "Building a professional network with LinkedIn". Don't miss out!

Save the Date: June 19th at OSU's Newark Campus "Popping the Fake News Bubble: Engaging Students in 21st Century Media and Information Literacy" (PDF) featuring national media literacy expert, Frank W. Baker.

OELMA and ALAO are also looking for poster session presenters. 

From OELMA: "Do you have an effective lesson or strategy for teaching students about fake news, media literacy, or filter bubbles? If you do, you are invited to share at the OELMA and CMCIG of ALAO one-day fake news and media literacy event.

This poster session will last from about 30 to 45 minutes. Each presenter will have a table space to set up a poster to share their teaching ideas. Presenters may bring a laptop or tablet to share digital information. Attendees will have a chance to stroll through the room visiting the various stations during this time.

PCI Webinar - Growing Your Brand with Social Media

SWON is pleased to be able to provide PCI Webinars to our Supporting Members for free (and to Geographic Members and everyone else at a reduced price).

Next up: "Growing Your Brand with Social Media." Social media is everywhere these days, and if your library isn’t “plugged in,” then it is missing out on a huge marketing opportunity.

In this webinar, we will discuss how a large portion of patrons experience their library’s culture and brand through their online presence, specifically through social media. We will identify ways in which you can better utilize your brand throughout the seemingly countless number of platforms out there with just a few key tricks.
