Using LibGuides & LibSurveys for Conference Planning
Monica Ruane Rogers – California University
About (14min 8sec):
As a member of the planning committee for the State System of Higher Education Library Cooperative Organization Annual Meeting in Harrisburg, PA, I have been charged with the task of creating the registration page for our conference, as well as several pages of evaluations (one of which will be used almost solely on mobile devices). Instead of using a stand-alone forms product for which my institution would have to pay an additional fee, I chose to make both our registration page as well as the evaluations with LibSurveys, to which we already have a subscription. One of the other universities in our system was able to embed my widget into the conference website, hosted on their institution’s LibGuides, thereby allowing for a seamless registration experience for conference attendees. This presentation showcases an inter-library collaboration using an outside-the-research-box use for a LibApps product, and will stimulate you to utilize these products for creative and innovative purposes.
