The notion of marketing in the context of libraries / information services

products involves a number of activities and procedures: Conducting market
research, Coordinating the elements of the marketing mix, segmenting
promotion efforts to specific groups, preparing a strategic plan, preparing
a marketing plan, and conducting a marketing audit, etc. Many librarians
also consider marketing as a viable tool to promote new technology in

Marketing tools and techniques offer library / information professionals an
opportunity to '*reach out*' to their customers more effectively.
