Everyone has their favourite social media channels for keeping up to date with news and professional issues. I am a Twitter devotee, I’m starting to experiment with Instagram, and I admit to a slight addiction to Pinterest. So where can you find AISL on the web? And how can you use social media to follow the fun at the AISL 2015 conference in Tampa?
Find Independent Ideas blog posts, interesting articles, pictures and conference news here.
Twitter is great for short, interesting links. AISL tweets using the hashtags #aisl, #aislibrarians, #aislblog, and for the duration of the Tampa conference, #aisltampa2015.
Follow our YouTube channel for lots of great multimedia resources! You can see the stars of our Librarians of AISL series, and during the Tampa conference you’ll be able to see footage of each day’s events.
Our dedicated and enthusiastic pinners are continuously adding new pins to the AISL boards, including Book Displays, Library Ideas, Plagiarism Tools and Ideas, and Books Librarians Love. If you’d like to pin to these boards, you need to add yourself as a pinner. More information on how to do this will be sent to the AISL list. The boards are a great source of inspiration!
New for Spring 2015 is the AISL instagram account. Add your pictures using the hashtags #aisl, #aislibrarians, #aislblog, and for the duration of the Tampa conference, #aisltampa2015. We’d love to see and share your pictures of the conference!
I won’t be attending the conference this year, so am looking forward to experiencing the full AISL conference via social media. Also note that session materials and handouts will be posted to the wiki, so if you’ve not signed up to access our useful wiki, please do so before the conference begins!
Have fun in Tampa, and remember to use #aisltampa15!
