Many academic librarians create and use LibGuides on a regular basis. As online tools, research guides should follow best practices for user experience, while also serving the needs of researchers on our campuses. Much has been published about LibGuide design in the last decade, and it can be hard to wade through the variety of literature, much of it gray literature. In keeping with evidence based library and information practice, the researchers conducted an in-depth literature review, developed a set of literature-informed best practices for LibGuide design, and applied them to their own guides.
For our sessions, we use Zoom. There is a webinar client 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.
