They’ve Got to See it to Believe It

Mitschnitt eines Webinars der ALA: „They’ve Got to See it to Believe It: Getting Decision Makers Into Your Library“

In-person visits are critical for effective influence on politicians, particularly in an election year. With the last three months of the election season (phew!) around the corner, now is the time to press council members, legislators, administrators, school board members — in fact, anyone you can think of — to visit. And if you’re concerned about whether election rules restrict your ability to be involved in advocacy at this time of year, don’t be! This video covers the rules of engagement and points you to the resources at and to keep your visits aboveboard. Watch to learn the secret strategies for getting decision makers in the door — and eventually agreeing with you!

We’d love to hear from you about your experiences with site visits. Please contact Ted Wegner,, and share your stories. This way we can hear what is working (and what isn’t) and share success stories with other libraries who are interested in legislator site visits.

In der OPL-Theorie von Guy St. Clair wurden sie „Fürsprecheer“ für die Bibliothek genannt – Personen in Institutionen, die einflußreich sind und für die Bibliothek zu sprechen bereit sind. Hier in diesem Webinar geht es um die Gewinnung von Fürsprechern!
