Mid-Term Conference

Barcelona, April 22-23, 2010

how did the idea of developing this promotion plan come about
How did the idea of developing this promotion plan come about?
  • As a result of a Marketing course (February 2010):
    • There was a demand for training in this area
    • The course was proposed by CIBE (Inter-institutional Committee of Specialised Libraries of the Basque Government)
    • The IVAP (Basque Institute of Public Administration) organised the course, which was given by Viviana Fernández Marcial
    • The course required students to do an end-of-course project, which consisted of drafting a documentary product or service promotion plan
    • The end-of-course project had to be done in pairs; AVPD (Basque Data Protection Agency) and Consumer Affairs Directorate documentalists decided to work together to develop:
        • the “Short guide to the Google search engine”
what is the google guide
What is the “Google Guide”?
  • The CIBE came up with the idea: all our users use Google so let’s help them to use this tool!
  • As a result, the work group in which the authors of this paper took part with another two professionals (Belén Castelló and Elisa Rodríguez) was formed and the “Google Project” was put into motion. Stages:
    • Draft and distribute a questionnaire among 1215 people (September 2009)
    • The results from 483 responses were set out in a report (November 2009)
    • An initial product was developed (January 2010): the “Short guide to the Google search engine”, including:
      • A list of operators, commands, interface resources, specific search engines...with practical examples
the product is alive it is growing and reproducing
The product is “alive”: it is growing and reproducing
  • The explanations contained in the guide have been translated into Basque and interface resources in this language have been incorporated (January 2010)
  • In the near future:
    • 2nd stage: extension to the guide:
      • FAQs
      • Advanced manual
    • 3rd stage: a Google guide with real examples of searches in Basque
  • And after that...?
we went back to the beginning we joined forces to develop a promotion plan

segmentation and target
Segmentation and target

  • Segmentation:
    • Consumer Affairs Directorate: multiple segments (42) due to combination of location (seven work centres) professional category (3) and organisational dependence (2 types) variables
    • AVPD: 9 segments, due to the fact that only the professionalcategory (3) and professionalactivity (3) variables are included
  • Target: specialist non-IT personnel and administrative staff segments were chosen in both institutions. Total: 25 people.

Aims of the promotion plan
  • Publicise the “Short guide to the Google search engine” among the chosen target public
  • Promote its use when making searches with Google
  • Increase the visibility of both documentation centres
  • Foster the image of documentalists as training agents
  • Get to know more about the needs of users by offering them a product adapted to their requirements
  • Update the image of libraries: they are centres in tune with the new trends
message brand and slogan
Message, brand and slogan
  • Message (values of the product it is wished to emphasise): time-saving, security, knowledge, adapted to users’ needs
  • Brand:



      • Conveys the idea of added value
      • It is a Latin term, valid in Basque and Spanish
      • Displayed with a typeface and colour suggestive of dynamism
  • Advertising slogan and image: “Are you tired of wasting time when using Google? Google plus teaches you the best tricks to get more out your search engine”
budgeting and control
Budgeting and control
  • Budget: only for the preparation of the “shortened product template”. Includes design costs, layout and design, printing and lamination
  • Control:
    • Promotion plan implementation period: 28-3-2010 / 11-6-2010
    • At the end of this period, a number of different assessment indicators will be applied, and six months later a new questionnaire will be sent to assess the level of satisfaction with the product
  • The promotion of documentary products and services increases the visibilityof libraries and helps them to adapt their services to the needs of users
  • Collaboration between the specialised libraries of the Public Administration is possible and advisable when undertaking more ambitious projects (besides, this does away with their traditional isolation)
  • “Dynamic” and “open” projectsmust be fostered
