Promote Your Library During Quarantine

On March 26, I gave a special, free webinar and I'm sharing the handout with everyone here. 

"Why and How to Promote Your Online Services During the Quarantine"

The webinar was recorded, and is available here for free:

Note that this is free for anyone around the world; you simply have to sign up for Library 2.0 (just your name and email).

There are 4 webinars this afternoon in this "Special Pandemic Mini Conference" -- see them all at the link above.

Deep thanks to PCI Webinars and Library 2.0 managers for quickly putting together this practical, useful, comforting, community-building, safe-to-attend, online mini conference. Go check out their other offerings, some of which are free during this time.

Stay well everyone! Scroll down for my handout...
