Promoting Our 2016 Reading Challenge Using 'Netflix-style' Browsing

We are using LibGuides v.2 to show off our regional movie collection in a "Netflix" sort of browsing way and are currently designing a readers advisory tool to consolidate "all things bookish." Our 2016 Reading Challenge has been very successful as an interactive LibGuide by encouraging readers to share comments, about books they discover, as they meet each challenge in a Google form. These responses are uploaded with bookcover art that links back to the library's catalog, making it easy for readers to reserve books for pick-up at the library.

Training Session Software

For our sessions we use Zoom. There is a small browser plug in required for entering the webinar. It will download automatically when joining the webinar or can be downloaded in advance (Zoom Client for Meetings). For additional help using Zoom, check out our Trouble Shooting Guide.
