Career-Changers – How the Public Library Can Help

Marketing news feed - Thu, 10 Apr 2014, 10:20am
Librarianship was a second career for me. Changing paths was not easy at any step along the way. Now, I am watching my partner go through the same process. I am also seeing a world in which unemployment looms large and the concerns which plague both job seekers and career changers seem to be magnified. This situation has made me wonder, what, if anything, can the public library do to support this segment of our population? I do believe we can help.Share this post with:  for librariesfor state governmentfor the publicgeneral informationmarketing

15 sources for finding free online images

Marketing news feed - Wed, 9 Apr 2014, 9:21am
The ancient saying that a picture is worth 1,000 words comes as no surprise to content marketers. Images arouse emotions, set the tone for your writing, help you tell a better story, and aid your readers in "seeing" what you're trying to convey in words. You can buy images; it's easy. However, it can get expensive pretty quickly, especially if you're committed to delivering high-quality visual content. If your budget is tight, you'll be thrilled to learn that there are places to find images online for free.Share this post with:  for librariesfor state governmentfor the publicgeneral informationmarketingsocial media
