Presented by Drexel’s iSchool, this free webinar will cover topics like social media, but also the tools that librarians need in order to adapt in their changing roles.
What: Dr. Michael D. McDonald
When: October 20, 5:00pm
Details from the Drexel site:
In the context of increasing real-time information abundance, librarians as a profession face new opportunities to contribute to a more resilient public health by applying long-held skills and values to social media content and intelligent social networks. Dr. Michael D. McDonald will engage in a discourse as to how the strategically oriented librarian can invest a new dimension of power and responsibility in their professional role by contributing to the management of this new information sharing environment in the prevention and management of large-scale social crises (e.g., disease outbreaks, terrorism, natural disasters, economic and social discontinuities) at the global, national, regional, and local levels.
