Should you be concerned about Google’s ability to answer your audience’s questions before they’ve even reached your website? How important is face-to-face communication in an increasingly digital world?

Answers to all these questions and more can be found here on The University of Manchester Library’s Marketing and Communications Blog. Launched in June 2018, the blog aims to share insights, ideas and expertise from the Library’s Strategic Marketing and Communications (SMC) Team.
