As training officer for Oasis in England I joined LinkedIn in 2012 & it very quickly became apparent that many potential contacts worked for organisations not then registered on Oasis. Once contacts had been made on LinkedIn I sent a standard email offering free training sessions in Oasis, giving more background to the Online Form & potential lodging of reports in the ADS Library. Many replies were received & training visits made. One memorable trip was made to Long Buckby in Northamptonshire to register Iain Soden Heritage Services on Oasis. Another great advantage of LinkedIn was found to be the notable number of scientific and architectural contacts made. This initiative is ongoing & in the last week some new invites have been sent out. A new discussion group ‘Oasis Forum‘ was also set up on LinkedIn this year.
