Down & Dirty Social Media - What to Do When the Novelty Wears Off: Webinar (09/15/16) 

Remember when social media was new and interesting? Before you realized what hard work it really is?

Laura Solomon, author of two books on social media in libraries, will help you to wade through the quagmire of modern social media and get on the path of organized, streamlined practices. She'll cover topics such as dealing with trolls and social media planning, as well as handling burnout and even knowing when to pull the plug entirely.

Social media work may never be novel again, but it can get easier!
