Discussion How do we get non-librarians to join these conversations?

by Amy Ferguson on Mon, Jan 30, 2012 at 11:37 am

The conversations at midwinter only involved librarians.  How do we get others involved?  What outlets will reach the larger community?  Facebook?  Library Boing Boing group?

A place to continue the conversations started at the 2012 Midwinter Meeting.
