Developing your personal brand as a librarian

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Have you developed a personal brand as a librarian? When you meet someone at work who would benefit by knowing who you are and what you can do, do you have a personal elevator pitch? Would you like to better promote your value as an information professional? Then come to this panel discussion and workshop on branding ideas. It will be led by public and academic librarians representing the needs of both early-career and mid-career professionals. Regardless of what kind of library professional you are and where you work, we could all benefit from some conversation and new ideas on how to better communicate our value to our colleagues, supervisors, patrons, and other stakeholders. This program will include time for participants to sketch their own personal brand or elevator pitch, and hopefully a few participants will be willing to share their ideas with the room.
