*SLA Europe presents "New Professionals and Marketing Your Library Service
- Marketing Yourself, Marketing Your Service"*
On the 26th June 2012, SLA Europe is bringing two of the Library and
Information Profession’s most innovative and exciting new members to Leeds!
Ned Potter and Bethan Ruddock will be discussing the issues surrounding
their new books, “The Library Marketing
and “The New Professional’s
to give you a valuable insight into the world of marketing your service and
the mindset of the “New Professional”. In addition to examining the ideas
put forward in their forthcoming publications, and being able to pose your
questions to Ned and Bethan, those attending the event will be entered
into two prize draws on the night! Courtesy of Facet Publishing, we are
giving you the chance to win either a copy of Bethan or Ned’s new book.
Simply attend the event, and hope your name is drawn from the hat!
