The workshop will be conducted by the New Media Team at NTU Libraries.  The team will discuss aspects of the Social Media strategy, learning points on winning user acceptance and examples of social media projects. They will then demonstrate how to create a vibrant user community using free or low cost social media tools for the second half of the workshop. Participants can bring along their notebook PCs and try out these tools immediately. The workshop will end with a panel discussion, drawing librarians from different countries, to share how various libraries implement their social media strategies and the challenges faced.

This class will be hands on, fast and definitely intense. You will walk away with a comprehensive understanding of how to come up with your own social media strategic and what are the tools available that you can deployed easily at a low cost and effectively.
