In this webinar you’ll learn more about the phenomenon, how publishers create transmedia, how users access it, what the barriers to access are, what’s happening in libraries currently, and how you can use transmedia to connect with users, particularly teens.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Know the basics of transmedia and its impact on the future of reading
  • Know Five ways to evaluate transmedia
  • Know three tools to use transmedia to reach teens, especially reluctant readers
