The second workshop I ran at the CoFHE/UC&R Joint Conference was aimed primarily at new professionals, although much of the content was relevant to all - it was titled "New professionals: build your network using social media". I updated some of the material from similar presentations I have given previously, and extended the scope to include tools and tips to help build a network. The main focus of the presentation was blogging and microblogging as they are the social media tools I've gained most from personally. I also touched on the use of social networking and we had interesting discussions around Facebook and LinkedIn.

Earlier this week, myself and Emma Illingworth (@wigglesweets and half of Librarians on the Loose) presented a joint workshop at CoFHE/UC&R Joint Conference 2010 titled “Your library brand and the student experience”. Although neither of us are directly involved in this sort of work in our institutions, it’s something we’re both passionate about and spend time researching, so we wanted to pull this together and share some of what we’ve learnt with others.
