Just a reminder that we will be at the ALA Annual conference in Anaheim, CA later this month. If you are attending the conference, please set aside some time to come by booth #874 and introduce yourself.
During the conference, Tiffany and Kathryn from DePauw will be hosting a poster session titled “Guides 2.0: Supporting Campus Programming and Current Events” that explores LibGuides beyond traditional subject guides. From the session abstract…
“Academic librarians have long maintained general pathfinders for subjects like art, biology, and sociology, and course-specific guides to support instruction. While we value our role in supporting curricular and research needs, academic librarians should also support their students’ needs for extracurricular, recreational, health, and other information, just as a public library does. We can and should provide resources about current and campus events, such as visiting speakers, colloquia, festivals, and exhibits.
University’s librarians are finding new ways to support campus activities and engage with student and faculty interests.”
We highly recommend you attend this session which will take you “beyond subject guides” and introduce some new LibGuides tricks.
