Archivists agree that social media rocks as a means to promote collections, engage new audiences, and improve services to existing users. Yet we work in diverse environments--each with its own set of social media challenges. One strategy does not fit every archivist, collection, or institution. Presenters hailing from disparate settings discuss strategies for successfully choosing, using, and assessing the effectiveness of social media venues to help accomplish traditional work as well as expand opportunities.
