Presented by: James Wethington
Archivist, UA Little Rock-Center for Arkansas History and Culture
Social media is a crucial component for an archive to raise awareness of local history and highlight what they do for their communities. Social media is oftentimes placed on the back burner or managed by one staff member with no input from others. This session will showcase a successful social media program at an academic archive by providing practical examples of ways to create engaging content, how to plan and schedule posts, encouraging staff and students to participate in and create social media content, interacting with your audience, and tackling controversial materials in your collections.
This webinar will be recorded and the recording will be made available to all paid registrants.
