Many law libraries now have a social media presence, but they still struggle with how to use these tools. This panel will discuss how to start social media outreach, social media “must haves,” how to justify continued use of social media as an outreach tool, how to keep up with content, and how to get people to follow your accounts. Speakers will also highlight their most and least successful posts, with critiques of those posts.
