Review and Discuss Social Media Survey: Summary and Next Steps

  • Anyone can make edits or suggested edits to the summary.
  • With most respondents using Facebook, the committee will use that product to promote CARLI Digital Collections.
  • We will share the summary document on the website and add a blurb to the newsletter.
  • We will have one central social media presence with:
    • New collections posts
    • Social media reposts from other institutions/links to other social media accounts
    • Guest posts by institutions that don’t have their own social media accounts or want to use ours to promote their collections
      • Schedule posts and review them before they are posted
  • Action Steps:
    • Set up Facebook page, follow other institutions accounts
      • Can we use the current CARLI facebook page (Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI)  facebook page)? Staff liaisons are checking if this is possible.
    • Come up with a standardized format for posting
    • Invite people to volunteer to guest post once we’ve sent out the survey
    • Create a ‘press release’ to promote the Facebook page. Something for libraries to distribute to their wider academic communities.

    • Survey for the end of the sessions:
