THEME: Marketing on a Shoestring: A Lightning Round of Ideas

Libraries of all types are challenged to stretch limited resources to respond 
to diverse customer group wants and needs. Enthusiastic library users are 
calling on libraries to provide popular services such as e-books, government 
information and Internet access.  Libraries serve as the premiere providers of 
lifelong learning resources and as repositories for society's knowledge bank. 
These growing and disparate roles require increased financial support from 
funders and other key stakeholders.  Strategic marketing planning is critical 
if today's library staff are to maintain services and resources, as well as to 
effectively communicate funding needs.  In this changing environment, budgets 
for marketing the library are minimal or non-existent.

Yet sometimes good partners, ideas, strategy and support have more impact than 
even an increase in funding.   "Marketing on a Shoestring: A Lightning Round of 
Ideas" will "spark" creativity by offering illustrative case studies and points 
of view for successful marketing strategies that are not costly, but will  gain 
recognition and resources.  We are planning for an "electrical" exchange that 
will help attendees promote their libraries in communities where it counts.

We have the following suggested themes for potential speakers, but feel free to 
come up with your own ideas:

  *   Successful marketing outcomes with little financial support - how does 
this work?

  *   "Free" social media tools - how can these best facilitate marketing?

  *   Unpaid partners, stakeholders and advocates:  what role can they play in 
implementing the library's marketing strategy?

  *   Marketing mix strategies:  how can the library change the place of 
delivery, cost to customer and/or promotion without driving up library costs?

  *   No or little cost advertising:  how can the library gain cooperation from 
the media?

  *   Secondary data such as census reports or other marketing data:  how can 
this best be used for today's library?


Papers can be written and given in any of the official IFLA languages: English, 
French, German, Russian, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese. However, abstracts should be 
submitted in English.
