#GLAMsGetSocial: How Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums Use Social Media

Join us for a symposium about how social media is changing the ways that the GLAM sector (galleries, libraries, archives, and museums) connects with audiences. The event will be an opportunity for social media practitioners to share successes and challenges, and meet others in the GLAM sector who are creating content, promoting their institutions, and encouraging dialogue on social media.
