Rebranding the library: Generating visibility in the virtual age Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N262
Description :

When library patrons find scholarly material, they typically link directly to the full text, bypassing any page that would draw attention to their library’s involvement. Libraries need to find new ways to improve visibility lest their funding be impacted. We suggest several ways of rebranding the library as a space that exists virtually as well as physically and encourage the audience to share their own “invisibility” challenges.
