Call for Lightning Round Talks:  Promoting Libraries to Non-Traditional students.
ACRL (National) Library Marketing & Outreach Interest Group (LMOIG)
Greater NYC Meetup

*deadline: Fri Nov 1, 2019*

How do you promote your library to non-traditional students?  How do you engage and target students who may not fit the profile of a typical undergraduate student?   How do you promote libraries to students who may be parents or grandparents, who take courses 100% online, and who may work full time while studying ?  We are seeking brief, lightning round talks (10-15 mins) on how you promote your libraries to non-traditional students. Share your successes and failures, best tips, and what you’ve learned! We want to learn from you!
