For August’s #auslibchat we talked about advocacy – how we can advocate for ourselves and our libraries.

@aliangac asked these questions:
Q1. In what ways does your library advocate for itself, and what has the impact been?
Q2. What are the characteristics of a successful #GLAM advocacy campaign? Can you point to some great examples?
Q3. How do we identify who to direct our advocacy efforts towards? How do we target them effectively?
Q4. What role can partnerships play – e.g. external advocates like “friends of the library” groups; community groups?
Q5. Can you recommend any useful tools or strategies for library advocacy?
