They're Googling You: Online Identity for LIS Professionals

May 1 - 31, 2010 (online asynchronous)
$250 (Simmons GSLIS Alumni price $200)
PDPs: 15

Should you separate your professional online identity from the personal, and
if so, how? Self-promotion and branding is becoming increasingly important
as library professionals face dwindling traditional employment
opportunities, due to layoffs, downsizing, budget cuts, and library
closings. On a more positive note, library staff wishing to contribute back
to the profession may want to hone a professional identity that makes one
marketable for teaching and training purposes, conference speaking or
consulting. Developing a professional online identity for either purpose may
be a challenging and rewarding endeavor.

Through setting up a blog style website for personal/professional promotion,
participants will:

* Explore and evaluate online applications and social networking tools for
professional development, self-promotion, and branding purposes
* Discuss identity and how you represent yourself professionally online
* Discover how to make yourself "googleable"
* Address online privacy and safety concerns
