Engaging Your Community... with Timely Content

All teaching librarians know - the most successful teaching sessions are based around an assignment, or project, or task.Why? Because contextual learning = long-term learning. That same equation applies when you connect learning resources with topical, current events. Users are far more likely to engage with and deep-dive into material when the subject matter is topical and relevant to them.

We'll Cover:

  • Why - Hear our reasons for why creating #TrendingNow content is important to your community.
  • Examples - See some examples from our community of libraries!
  • Organize - Creating these #TrendingNow LibGuides can have a short shelf life, so use tags to organize these trendy guides.
