‘Visitors, Residents and user-orientated online communications’ & visit to University of East London Stratford Campus

Last week Ian Clark, subject librarian at the University of East London, welcomed us at the Stratford Library and Learning Centre Campus. The campus had a very vibrant feel to it. The Library building looked stunning

After a tour of the Library, Ian talked to us about ‘Visitors, Residents and user-orientated online communications’.

This is his presentation: https://t.co/o0hHaH9pZH

It was all very interesting. As part of the presentation, Ian used https://www.mentimeter.com/. It was a great way to make his talk more interactive and for us to find what social media tools our fellow participants used.

If you want to learn more Ian’s take on the Visitors and residents model, this is his recent article for InfoToday: http://www.infotoday.eu/Articles/Editorial/Featured-Articles/Visitors-and-residents-understanding-digital-behaviours-105217.aspx
