Library Advocacy With Heart for #ili2017

The way we form meaning is hugely based on the biases we have. Facts will not always convince people they are wrong. In this presentation.
I focus on succesful examples of library advocacy and discuss what makes a succes. I also share insights from the Library Advocacy Lab and Public Libraries 2020 that aims for raising political awareness about public libraries in the European Union.
I recommend that library advocacy should focus on telling stories that appeal to our feelings. The personal stories from the community and support these stories with statistics and facts and align that to what is on the political agenda in your community.

Thank you Internet Librarian International for great conversations and learning opportunities.
