Presented by Kim Voss, Associate Professor and Area Coordinator for Journalism, Nicholson School of Communication

This session will demonstrate how to use social media to promote your professional work and to better understand the communication of the future. The focus will be on developing best practices of social media use, with examples from my professional blog, as well as my, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Slideshare accounts. There will also be tips on getting started for those not currently using social media.

ASERL's Open Access Week Chat with Peter Suber

The John C. Hitt Library will host an ASERL (Association of Southeastern Research Libraries) webinar and interactive discussion with Peter Suber, Director of the Harvard Office of Scholarly Communications and many other titles and accomplishments (see for his credentials.) Instead of a web-based lecture, this will be an interactive interview and discussion with Peter. Questions will be collected in advance to get the discussion started, but attendees can also submit questions and comments in real-time during the session. Christine Fruin, ASERL's Visiting Program Officer for Scholarly Communications, will moderate the session.
