26 June 2012 – New Professionals and Marketing Your Library Service: Marketing Yourself, Marketing Your Service

On the 26th June 2012, SLA Europe is bringing two of the Library and Information Profession’s most innovative and exciting new members to Leeds! Ned Potter and Bethan Ruddock will be discussing the issues surrounding their new books, “The Library Marketing Toolkit” and “The New Professional’s Toolkit“, to give you a valuable insight into the world of marketing your service and the mindset of the “New Professional”. In addition to examining the ideas put forward in their forthcoming publications, and being able to pose your questions to Ned and Bethan, those attending the event will be entered into two prize draws on the night! Courtesy of Facet Publishing, we are giving you the chance to win either a copy of Bethan or Ned’s new book. Simply attend the event, and hope your name is drawn from the hat!
