Creating and Nurturing Your Digital Identity
In this session, we will explore how scholars and librarians create their digital identities, and how they can nurture them over time to enhance the personal and professional potential of being online. Participants will have opportunities to reflect on choices they make as they set up and maintain their online identities, with strategies for particular behaviors that may support them at different stages of the development of their digital identities and help sustain their digital relationships. Presented by Maha Bali on Thursday, April 8, 2021, at 2 p.m. CT. Sponsored by the Atla Scholarly Communication Committee. Please note that this interactive session will be recorded.
