Get involved with #uklibchat! – Deadline 9 August midnight


We are looking for a new awesome team member to help us promote our chats and the work we do.

There are currently 5 team members : Annie, Gaby, Ka-Ming, Linsey and Siobhan. We all help to run chats but we would like someone to help us out with promoting #uklibchat more consistently.

As a team member you would also be part of planning chats, discussing feature articles and schedules but you would be specifically responsible for:

  • Managing Twitter
    • Writing regular tweets
    • Retweeting relevant topics
    • monitoring mentions and direct messages
  • Helping manage email
    • Monitoring emails
    • Communicating with mailing lists
  • Exploring potential for other ways to promote what we do.
  • Making links with relevant organisations and networks

Although we are mainly looking for someone to help promote our work, all team members are welcome to participate in all aspects of the running of #uklibchat. We are a friendly, collaborative team. If you are interested in hosting chats and getting involved in other aspects of running #uklibchat, just let us know.

If you want to volunteer in this role you need be able to commit regular online team meetings via Google docs (every one or two months) and being able to monitor communications regularly.

Why join us?

Participating as a team member in #uklibchat is a great way to develop your skills in social media, collaboration and planning. You can also improve your professional knowledge beyond your own sector, make connections and engage with others in the LIS field.

Get in touch

If you are interested in the role, please get in touch  by email to uklibchat@gmail.com with a short description of why you are interested and what you think you would bring to the team.

If you have any ideas you want to share about what you would like to do to help us promote ourselves better, let us know.


The deadline is midnight on the 9 August 2015
