This Pecha-Kucha-style session features four strategies for engaging the academic community. Luther staff discuss how a merged library-IT organization has recreated its social media persona. They share techniques, including Facebook photo strategies and social media monitoring techniques. Idaho State staff promote intellectual curiosity and discovery, as well as encourage the community to imagine, innovate and inspire with a mobile strategy using Quick Response (QR) codes in the stacks, expanding patrons’ experience in using ebooks. Rocci discusses strategies used to engage, connect, and build relationships with college students completing a credit course in information literacy and creating library supporters and advocates in a virtual environment. NCSU discusses using crowdsourcing to tell the story about NCSU’s new library with cutting-edge technology and inspiring spaces, a model of the library of the future.
