PR on a Budget for Public Libraries - Today - April 8th

It’s YOUR turn! The Digital Libraries Round Table, led by Trinia Bolfing and Jennifer Bigheart, invite librarians to share information about their digital projects in five minutes or less. If you have cool digitized resources, promote them. If you’ve documented your standards and best practices, share them. We want to hear and see and learn what you’ve done! Session is from 4-4:50p and is located in room 102 AB, street level.  A business meeting follows the program.
