Saoirse de Paor, teaching & learning librarian at Maynooth University library, gave a presentation at the joint HSLG & A&SL networking evening. She has kindly agreed to share her slides of the presentation. Taking your Social Media to the Next Level!
With her social media and communications hat on, Saoirse de Paor spoke of the different ways that social media platforms can enhance how libraries engage and interact with their users and how it can further promote library services, supports and resources in a new and innovative way.
From working in social media-specific roles and the experience gained from running student initiatives and online campaigns on behalf of Maynooth University Library, Saoirse has gained an insight into the many social media tips and tricks that can help others in the profession to increase visibility and outreach strategies as well as helping to foster connections, partnerships and collaborations.
From developing a brand, to using multiple means of engagement, she will give you the tools to take your library’s social media to the next level!
