Developing campus and community relationships for introverts: How to make important connections and allies for your library, even if you hate talking to people.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As technology makes it easier for people to get their work done without entering a physical library, establishing and maintaining in-person relationships with allies on campus and in the community becomes imperative for maintaining an understanding of what the library does and how it remains a vital component in the lives of the people it serves. How can an introvert develop the skills necessary to develop meaningful relationships with people they barely know? This session will provide examples of methods for cold-calls, requesting meetings, striking up a conversation with complete strangers, and techniques for turning one conversation into an established relationship and ally for the library.
