LMCC, the only event of its type for this library specialty, is designed for library employees of any level who are involved in marketing, communications, public relations, social media, and outreach in academic, public, and special libraries. Conference sessions will explore issues that are important for this niche of library work, and the event will include time for attendees to network and to discuss mutual challenges.
The Library Marketing and Communications (LMC) Group saw a gap in professional development opportunities for librarians who work in marketing and communications, is working to bridge that gap with education, training, and networking among library professionals, library staff and those who work in or with all types of libraries and information centers. We’re excited to bring you a timely, practical, inspiring, and collegiate event geared specifically toward the necessary work of library marketing and communications. The LMCC aims to showcase the tried and true, the latest trends, and the best practices in marketing and communications. Sessions and speakers will provide practical tips and takeaways that can be immediately applied to any library’s communication and marketing efforts. We want all types of libraries to be in better positions to have their messages heard and to have their services well-used and appreciated.
Registration includes lunch and a snack break on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon.
