Social media excels in its ability to capture “a moment.” But, how do libraries create spontaneous content while ensuring consistency and quality? And, how do social media managers tackle this Sisyphean task amidst preexisting library responsibilities?

Washington and Lee University Library, an undergraduate library supporting 1,800 students, balances regularity/spontaneity and management/delegation through an approach that includes a social media plan; guidance from the university’s communications office; and the empowerment of work-studies trained in communication, copyright, and design best practices.

This workshop provides tested examples, templates, and workflows others can use to create methodical strategies that still embrace spontaneity.
