Thinking of a Master Plan: Designing and Creating Engaging LibGuides
The University of Tennessee Libraries are the information center of the university. Many of our classes, library and campus-wide events and issues are accompanied by LibGuides that offer supplementary materials on the subject and showcase our related collections. In this presentation, Shaina Destine and Allison Sharp will discuss the thought process and the creative process that goes into creating these useful and highly regarded LibGuides.
Instructional Design & LibGuides: A Perfect Fit
Explore how the ADDIE model of instructional design, Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation, was interpreted to shape creation of a comprehensive LibGuide for the Masters in Adult Education online program. This session will highlight two design cycles, including formative feedback from students and professors to improve guide presentation and suggestions for new library instruction topics. Print and media resources created using the design principle CRAP – or PARC – contrast, repetition, alignment, and proximity, will also be featured.
Outreach When Out of Reach: Using Libguides for Online Outreach during COVID-19
A summer library instruction for a math class gave Natalie the idea to create tailored LibGuides to reach out to various disciplines, extra-curricular activities and student clubs to showcase the library's well-curated online services to continue supporting its community. From "contactless calculators" to "De-stress online with the Library" with LibGuides, outreach doesn't have to be out of reach!
LibGuides Beyond the Library
One of the issues in managing information in schools is making things easy to find and visual. Traditionally LibGuides have been used to create a link between the physical and virtual library and to curate content for subject courses. Sharing an office with our MYP curriculum coordinator led to expanding the use to curriculum, teaching, and learning content as well. With the closure of schools due to Covid-19 in February 2020 in China our LibGuides became the first port of entry for teachers, students and parents with How-to's and FAQs not only for our own community but also internationally as more and more schools moved to online learning. With a little training, guides could be adapted for our PYP exhibition by one of our special needs teachers in the Elementary school and the deluge of information on online learning could be carefully curated in one place.
