Dr. Kevin S. Trowbridge, assistant professor of public relations, delivered the keynote address June 17 during the opening day of the Tennessee Electronic Library conference. More than 100 media specialists and librarians from across the state attended the inaugural event held at Montgomery Bell State Park.
Trowbridge’s presentation provided an overview of strategic communication planning and laid a foundation for the attendees’ work on developing a strategy to raise the virtual library’s visibility as it approaches its 15th anniversary.
The Tennessee Electronic Library is a virtual library administered by the Tennessee State Library and Archives, a division of the Tennessee Department of State. The Internet-based library provides Tennesseans with access to more than 400,000 digital resources, including magazines, scholarly journals, test preparation materials, federal census records, Tennessee primary source materials, and more.
