Imagine that you are the director of the local historical society. Your staff puts in a great effort to curate exhibits and organize events for the community. Devise a marketing plan to reach out to the community and make them aware of these events.

Answer:

First, look at census data to become familiar with the demographics of your community (number of senior citizens, children, etc.) so you can focus your marketing efforts in the most efficient ways. For example, if there are senior citizens housing in your community, talk to the facilities to see if you can come and speak to their patrons about the historical society. To engage with the children in the community, contact local schools about arranging field trips. Make sure to use social media, such as creating a facebook page and keep it current or development your email lists for "email blasts" about upcoming events.

Subject: Library and Information Science

Question:

Imagine that you are the director of a mid-sized public library. How would you begin to gather data on what types of resources, including books and media (print and electronic), you should budget for in your library.

Answer:

For your particular library you can look at Interlibrary Loan statistics to see which resources are missing from your collection, as well as a retrospective report on circulation statistics to see which subjects have been the most popular with patrons. Database statistics provided by database vendors will let you know which electronic resources are being used the most by your users. For further research you may decide to implement a survey for the patrons to tell you this information directly.

Question:

Imagine that you are a congressional aide for a state senator who is running for reelection. Prepare a memo using primary sources to describe the main issues for constituents in your district.

Answer:

Primary resources mean using direct information from the source itself. For the question above polling results would be a good indicator of public concerns. Another important source would be looking at recent issues in the local news, for example, local newspapers, particularly the editorials and "letters to the editors" section.
