Library Advocacy: Pushing Through Inertia

Library Advocacy Student Interns at San Jose State University’s School of Information will highlight some of the special challenges library advocates face and what is being done state-wide and nationally to improve access to libraries, literacy, and school libraries run by librarians. This includes unique approaches to reaching potential supporters, being persistent, creating a nationwide GIS map on various library related datapoints, connecting movers and shakers in the library world through a school library summit, utilizing Alumni contacts, contacting PTAs, Little Free Libraries, and more.
