Twitter on Thursdays Preview for 9/24/2015

Our first Thursdays on Twitter post will give you some information about the upcoming NCSLMA conference in October. This post will preview the guests we have joining us for the chat, which will be next Thursday, September 24, and resources to make anyone new to Twitter more comfortable participating in the chat. Each time we host a Twitter chat, we will post helpful information about the theme the Thursday before the actual chat.

If you missed our last blog, please go back and get acquainted with your new NCSLMA social media co-chairs, Tavia Clark and Mollee Holloman. We are revamping the way members interact with NCSLMA through our blog and on Twitter. Be sure to follow @NCSLMA on Twitter before our 9/24 chat, and also @Tavia_Clark and @MolleeBranden.

New to Twitter? Check out this helpful tutorial and resources: Twitter 101. If you’re just looking for help on how to participate in a Twitter chat, we suggest using TweetDeck.

Our chat will start at 8pm on Thursday, September 24. Be sure to use #NCSLMAchat to follow along and engage with other members.

Our guests:

  • Sedley Abercrombie - @sedley1 is the NCSLMA Advocacy and Governance Chair and presenting on “Code Camp”

    • “What do you think is the biggest issue that needs to be addressed in your media center?”

  • Walter Carmichael - @WCarmich is the NCSLMA President-Elect and Conference Planning Chair

    • “ What is the "Must See" session for everyone and why?”

Connect with us at the conference:

Your NCSLMA Social Media Team, Mollee & Tavia, will be at the conference and have many ways to connect with you ~ virtually and in-person. Use our conference hashtag #NCSLMA15 anytime you tweet or post on Instagram, and check the @NCSLMA Twitter feed to participate in some of our social media challenges (prizes included!). We will also post information about a Tweet-Up, which is an in-person get-together where we can help you navigate Twitter, answer questions about using social media during the conference, and of course, just make some connections. We will have the meet-up on Friday before the keynote, around 7:30am. Location TBD and we will post it on Twitter to remind our conference attendees.

If you won’t be in Winston Salem for the conference, be sure to follow @NCSLMA and #NCSLMA15 to join us virtually and learn from your NC School Library peers.

Want to engage w/ NCSLMA more on Twitter?

We would love to have more members act as Twitter Chat guest “hosts” and hear from our members about topics you’d like discussed during our #NCSLMAchat nights. Please send us an email at [email protected] or tweet us @NCSLMA if you you want to make a suggestion or are willing to guest/host. Don’t worry! We will facilitate for you and make it as easy as possible - this is an excellent way to get your voice and ideas shared with other school librarians across the state!
