Title: It’s Who You Know: Building and Maintaining a Personal Network.

Many people think of networking as “schmoozing” – they see it as a bad word.  It’s not!  Networking is really the art of developing mutually beneficial relationships with people around you.  Networking is a give and take relationship, where you help each other.  Librarians can and should easily develop this skill and use it to promote themselves, their library services, and to create constructive working relationships with people at all levels of the organization.

By the end of the session, participants will acquire knowledge of how networking can help them personally and professionally, as well as tips and tricks for building and maintaining constructive, positive relationships with people at all levels of influence.
