WebEx Webinar

In a rapidly-changing world, it's vital for libraries to advocate for their role in society. Not only do we need to communicate with our patrons, but we also need to make a case with boards, local government, and our broader community.Our keynote speaker, Courtney Richardson, holds an MFA in graphic design and is a Ph.D candidate at the University of Illinois' iSchool. She creates visualization projects about African-American history in order to present archival material to the public.Courtney's presentation will be followed by a brief overview of how librarian KatieRose McEneely uses dashboards to communicate library data to Rosalind Franklin University's administration, faculty, and staff.We'll also have a short workshop where you can put these concepts into practice, brainstorm with fellow attendees, and learn about no- and low-cost resources to help you tell your story.Event Coordinator: Gwyneth Stupar Email: Phone: 847-870-9628
