    • So, what should we be doing?
    • Bandwagon = Fail

    • Conversations
      • What conversations do you have with your clients in the physical library?
    • Move those conversations online http://www.briansolis.com/2008/08/introducing-conversation-prism.html Continue the conversations
    • Speak their language
    • Free! But… http:// www.flickr.com/photos/16038409@N02/2326310839 /
    • BALANCE
      • Keep the channels of communication flowing regularly
      • BUT
      • Avoid overloading the client with information
    • Don’t expect a mad rush http://www.flickr.com/photos/dhammza/106714414/
    • Social networking sites alone won’t do the social networking for you! You still need to start the conversation.
    • What can we achieve?
