Hey, I think I just figured out how to post.  I still don't know where I'm posting to (the mavens community?), who will see this, or where it will be displayed, but here goes nothin'.

 

(oh, as I scroll down to post I see that the audience is "social media mavens".  Hi Mavens!

Discussion Increasing Participation?

by Aaron Dobbs on Wed, Apr 29, 2009 at 01:10 pm

While looking at the election returns statistics this week several folks had the same question I had... "I wonder why the turnout was so much lower this year?"

Along with the election, I wonder what we can do to increase participation (both in Association activities and on ALA Connect).

Any ideas?  (It's the end of the semester here & my brain is mush)

 

Discussion Using Facebook groups for increased library involvement

by Art Morrical on Thu, Apr 30, 2009 at 08:30 am

We are opening a new library building but have not been able to pass a operating rate increase referendum. One new way to increase participation is get the community involved with an interactive Facebook group. We started a Facebook group, "Fans of the Sugar Grove Public Library". Please jon us as I welcome your input on how to get the community residents to join and get more involved. What incentives do you offer folks to get there and then stay involved? Thanks for your support and ideas.

Discussion Interested in Government Info?

by Rebecca Troy-Horton on Tue, Apr 14, 2009 at 10:49 pm

Hello,

My name is Rebecca Blakeley and I'm glad someone started this group! I am definately a Social Media maven, so I had to join. ;-)

Hello,

I started a Government Information Interest Group at ALA Connect. All kinds of librarians are welcome! Public, School, Special, Academic, etc.! It is pretty bare bones right now and I could use some help in developing it and making it grow. It is a great way to connect with all types of librarians who share an interest in government information, but may or may not be part of a depository library or a member of GODORT. It is another way to provide outreach and educate our fellow librarians about the world of government information!

The group is for those interested in government information (federal, state, local, and international). Various topics of interest include depository libraries, government information collections, open access, transparency, and preservation of government information, E-government, Government 2.0, and using social networks to collect and disseminate government information (”Gov Docs 2.0″) and more!

If you could spread the word, I would really appreciate it!
