Curating Your Online Presence

Have you considered establishing an online presence for your academic identity? Wondering how to leverage social media to build academic contacts and publicize your own work? Want to learn how open access publication and repositories might benefit you? Did you know there are library resources that could help with these topics and more?

This workshop will help you to think about how to approach social media as a professional, how you might engage in the professional online conversations in your field, and best practices for sharing your own work or others'. You will also learn about how libraries' resources can benefit your scholarly reputation. Bring your laptops to set up accounts or get feedback on the digital presence you've already established! Presenters include Katie Kaczmarek Frew, PhD Candidate in English, Setsuko Yokoyama, PhD Student in English, along with a libraries' representative.

If you are interested in attending but can't make these sessions, please contact us at lib-rc@umd.edu.
