Among the trends that are redefining institutional libraries: a push for mobile content delivery, more focus on managing research data and rethinking the use of library spaces. These and other trends were highlighted in a new, freely available report published by the NMC, a community of experts in educational technology."

Making Social Media Work for Your Library - 0 views

  •  
    "Social Media has been hailed as the silver bullet of grassroots marketing. Circumvent aging advertisement models and talk directly to your community? The only cost is your time? Fabulous! It can be like that, but it takes some very specific strategy to achieve that kind of success. At Transparent Language, we've built our Social Media following to nearly 3 million fans on Facebook alone. Our blogs receive over 200,000 visitors each month, and our YouTube videos have been viewed more than 2 million times. And we built most of it, not with a large team or budget, but with a single dedicated staff member. Truly grassroots.
    The lessons we've learned along the way can benefit our library clients, too. In this slide deck, a follow-up to Lorien Green's presentation at NELA 2014, we present our "secret sauce"."

Library User Survey Templates & How-Tos - Library Research Service - 0 views

  •  
    "Are you interested in learning more about your patrons' usage of and satisfaction with your library, and their demographics?
    Here are 3 sample survey templates of different lengths to be used "as is" or adapted to your organization's specific research needs. The short survey template focuses on customer satisfaction, the medium and long survey templates add questions about library usage, and the long survey template also includes a demographics section.
    Before using the templates, it is important to read them carefully to ensure that all of the questions pertain to your library and to your information needs. Each template is formatted as a Microsoft Word document in order that you may delete, add, or modify questions as necessary.
    Each of these survey templates is intended to be very general to offer the richest opportunity for follow-up. For example, if you learned from the surveys that your patrons were less than satisfied with your library's facilities, you might then create a follow-up survey or plan interviews or focus groups to explore that issue at greater length."
