A practical webinar looking at a variety of ways libraries can increase their impact and reach in their communities using mobile technology, social networking, and integration with the consumer services users already use.

Libraries play a critical role in their communities that goes beyond their collections, focusing on events, outreach and library as place. In an increasingly digital and mobile world, libraries need new ways to reach out and engage. Now with the new OCLC Library Spotlight program (www.worldcat.org/spotlight), you can set up a dynamic mobile view of your library and dramatically extend its visibility into many popular web services—in just 10 minutes.

Learn about this free service, available to all, that will make it easier for your library to be found on the web and through highly trafficked services like Yelp. Hear how one library focused its messaging and engagement through coordinated efforts at a local level to maximize their web presence and reach.

Presented by: Jeff Penka, OCLC Director of Global Discovery and Syndication, and Johannes Neuer, Associate Director of Marketing, The New York Public Library
