The ALC 2015 conference theme is #network. The word network has many meanings for libraries. If we add a hashtag (#) we can take this year’s theme to a different level. With a hashtag a word or phrase becomes searchable on social media, and if used by enough people can “trend” and attract more people to the discussion.
What are your strategies for building networks in your library and community groups? What role do libraries play in creating and facilitating community conversations? What are the important social trends that are impacting and shaping the service you design and provide? The #network theme also encompasses the personal networks we form. How does personal networking help improve your library and your life? For example, what kind of networking takes place at this conference and how does it benefit our libraries?
