Upcoming Know & Go sessions: “Getting the Most Value from Member Discount Services" and "Leveraging Social Media Toward Success of Library Outreach"

Our popular Know & Go educational series, one of many no-charge benefits available to Amigos members, will offer these two informative Know & Go sessions in the coming weeks: "Getting the Most Value from Member Discount Services," and "Leveraging Social Media toward Success of Library Outreach."

"Getting the Most Value from Member Discount Services" is scheduled for November 17 from 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. CST. During this one-hour session, get a brief overview of the Amigos Member Discount program and how discounts are offered to members. Member Discount Services Representative Christopher Burke will offer an explanation of the vendors with whom Amigos has partnerships, and will discuss the difference between the Member Discount Service and Discount Direct programs. Time will also be allotted for questions and/or discussion. You may utilize this time period to discuss any number of issues or questions regarding the process of licensing and renewing products through Amigos. Register on the Amigos website.

"Leveraging Social Media toward Success of Library Outreach" is scheduled for December 1 from 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. CST. Attend this informative session presented by Consulting and Education Services Manager Arta Kabashi to learn how social media can be used to reach out to your patrons. This session will explore in detail both successful and unsuccessful methods of using such media and discuss best practices for engagement with these tools. It will also cover the importance of having a streamlined social media marketing strategy, and teach attendees how to construct such a strategy for their institution. Whether you are a public, academic, or school librarian, this session will be useful in understanding how to use technology and social media to your advantage in reaching out to your users and putting together library programs that benefit your patrons.
