For August’s #auslibchat we’ll be talking about advocacy, and how we can advocate for ourselves and our libraries. This month @aliangac will be asking these questions:

Q1. In what ways does your library advocate for itself, and what has the impact been? #auslibchat

Q2. What are the characteristics of a successful #GLAM advocacy campaign? Can you point to some great examples? #auslibchat

Q3. How do we identify who to direct our advocacy efforts towards? How do we target them effectively? #auslibchat

Q4. What role can partnerships play – e.g. external advocates like “friends of the library” groups; community groups? #auslibchat

Q5. Can you recommend any useful tools or strategies for library advocacy? #auslibchat

We hope to see you there!
