Business Communications: Library Style

Contact: Barb Jones
Contact: 573-884-5042 Fax: 573-884-1421 - - Midcontinental region
Advocating for our libraries is an increasing part of any library position. Doing so successfully should incorporate not only focused business communication writing but also creativity and collaboration. How we express ourselves can be directly related to the funding we receive and how well our libraries are perceived as an integral part of the institution. Communication may be an overused word for an under-developed skill. Writing clear, concise communiques, including white papers, business plans, grant proposals and budget justifications, targeted on what the reader needs to know to make a decision is essential in today’s fast-changing, bottom –line driven environment. Attendees should expect to be better informed about what constitutes efficient, effective communication vehicles, and how to create them.
