LibraryYOU: Library as Content Creator
A webinar exploring LibraryYOU, a project encouraging community members to share their knowledge and learn how to communicate through digital media formats.
This event has passed.
Learn how the Escondido Public Library partnered with local experts to create digital content for the library’s collection. Funded by an LSTA grant, the LibraryYOU project consists of a digital media studio, a website, and public training classes encouraging community members to share their knowledge and learn how to communicate through digital media formats. LibraryYOU helps strengthen connections with local businesses, establishing the library as a technology leader in the community.
This webinar covers how Escondido set up LibraryYOU and how other libraries, large and small, can set up similar community content creation projects.
Presented by: Donna Feddern, Digital Services Manager, Escondido Public Library.
