URI’s Graduate School of Library and Information Studies is the recipient of an IMLS grant to implement the Media Smart Libraries program. One of the goals of the program is to advance the digital and media literacy skills of librarians through a series of free continuing education workshops.  We invite you to the first FREE workshop:

East Providence Public Library


Presenter: Catherine Damiani, Digital Services Librarian, East Providence Public Library


Libraries of all kinds are already using Twitter to good effect.Whether it is to broadcast your library events, converse with other professionals, or follow experts and resources, Twitter should be one of your library's communication tools. In this session you will learn how to use Twitter and discuss ways that this micro-blogging tool can facilitate the exchange of information. We recommend that you create a Twitter account ahead of time and bring your own mobile device.


This workshop is part of the Media Smart Libraries program which was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Grant # LG-07-14-0045-14
