Does your library have a social media policy?
Chances are, it doesn't...but it almost certainly should. Learn why you need one, and what points are essential. Discover how writing this kind of policy can be completely different than writing any other kind for a library, and what you might need in a policy for staff versus what you might need to spell out for patrons.
This webinar will help you to understand some current best practices that you can use to guide you through the process of drafting your own social media policy for your library.
