Build a Robust Library Communications Plan with this Core webinar

Build a Robust Library Communications Plan with this Core webinar

A coordinated and strategic plan for communication and outreach can highlight your library’s value significantly. It can create a common experience and understanding for your library’s community of stakeholders including users, boards, administrators, donors, and social media networks. A strong communications plan keeps the library focused on objectives from the strategic plan and prevents resources from being wasted.

On Wednesday, September 16 at 1 pm CT, Core: Leadership, Infrastructure, and Futures will present the webinar “Creating a Strategic Library Communication Plan to Convey the Library’s Value and Values”. This webinar will outline the purpose and development of a library’s values, mission and vision statements, a strategic plan, a communication plan, and the embedding of that plan in organizational culture.

This webinar is ideal for library managers and leaders.

Presenter: Doralyn Rossmann, Associate Professor and Head of Digital Library Initiatives at Montana State University (MSU) in Bozeman, MT.

Attendees will learn how to create a mission statement, vision statement, values statement, strategic plan, and, ultimately, a communication plan. Learn how to embed these statements and plans in the organizational culture, apply specific tools and templates to create a communication plan for your library, and how to keep a communication plan an actively used resource in your library.
