LibGuide Guidance: Innovative Uses for LibGuides: Welcome

Presented by Amy Taylor and Shannon Roddy

Today's Program

While the majority of LibGuides come from academia, they aren't just for academic research. Librarians in all types of law libraries need to alert their users to the resources and services available to them, and LibGuides are an excellent way to do that. LibGuides can also be used to brand your library and expand your audience reach, and they're a great way to showcase your creativity. Learn about creative uses for LibGuides, including how they're being used in other disciplines; walk step-by-step through the creation of an interactive, visually stimulating LibGuide; and brainstorm innovative ways to use LibGuides in your own library.
 
Takeaways:
1) Participants will be able to identify at least three creative ways to use LibGuides.
2) Participants will be able to design a template to create a series of LibGuides with a cohesive theme and branding.
3) Participants will be able to create LibGuides that rely on eye-catching visuals linking to library resources.
