    Last week's conference was excellent - great speakers, wonderful facilities, very well organized and managed.  All members of the committee, for both pre-conference and conference, are to be commended and congratulated on a job well done. Thanks also to all conference program presenters, poster session participants, our Kent State Univ Stark Campus and Stark State College hosts, and vendor representatives.  Not to mention all conferees, without whom there's no point in gathering.  We all contributed to a highly successful conference.

    ALAO Preconference: Social Media Spark: Tips and Tech Tools to Ignite Your Community

    October 24, 2013

    Stark State College, North Canton, Ohio

    Preconference website: Social Media Spark


    Contact Judy Cerqua (cerqua.1@osu.edu) for information on late or on-site registration options.


    Registration is $25 and includes boxed lunch.

    Registration from 11am to noon, lunch noon to 1pm, program 1pm - 4pm.

     

    Lots of experts will tell you how to succeed at social media, but very few will lay out a clear path to failure. Learn what the most common points of failure are for libraries, and why libraries often aren’t getting what they want out of this new medium. Find out if your library is on its way to a social shipwreck and how you might be able to change course.


    Keynote: Laura Solomon, MCIW, MLS, is the Library Services Manager for the Ohio Public Library Information Network and the former Web Applications Manager for the Cleveland Public Library. She is a 2010 Library Journal Mover & Shaker.  Her book Doing Social Media So It Matters:  A Librarian’s Guide was published in late 2010 and The Librarian’s Nitty-Gritty Guide to Social Media was published in 2013.


    Please note that this is an interactive workshop and participants will need to bring a laptop.


    Questions about the preconference can be directed to Kathryn Venditti (kvenditt@ashland.edu) or Sara Klink (sklink@starkstate.edu).
