Reference: Marketing What You Bought

ON24_Reference_052212

Tuesday, May 22, 2012, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET At Library Journal’s midwinter reference roundtable, academic and public librarians expressed frustration that they don’t know how to best market the often-expensive materials they’ve bought from reference publishers and aggregators. SAGE Reference’s Rolf Janke quoted librarians as saying, “Help us market your content…We’re not in business. We don’t have marketing degrees.” At the same time, EBSCO’s Brian Duncan explained that something as simple as radio advertising has caused spikes in usage for libraries. Our participants will explain how to best market content to patrons so that material will fly off the real or virtual shelves.

Attendees will get workable plans and concrete examples of marketing strategies that have worked in various settings and with various sized patron populations. We’ll also hear from two librarians about what’s worked from them and what they need from vendors going forward.
