I’m proud to announce the completion of the Library Currents Social Media Plan! The plan is seven pages and takes into account the following important subjects:

1) Purpose and Objective of the plan
2) Mission Statement for Library Currents
3) Background history of the project and future activities
4) Resources used for the researching and planning process
5) An action brief statement
6) A Social Media Policy detailing site policies and guidelines that will be accessible on the website
7) Financial costs and funding possibilities
8) Action steps to roll out the Beta release of Library Currents ( and a 5-Year plan
9) Promotion, Marketing and Conversations with the community
10) Immediate goals, objectives and their evaluation

The Social Media Plan has given Library Currents a solid framework to start with, and it has  solidified the future of Library Currents in my thinking. I’m very excited to get started on the details of the plan, and look forward to sharing my successes with you.
