What do other Librarians have to Say?  growing.html

http://www.learningandleading- pm=2&u1=friend - pg33

#1… Add a survey to the guide, (if teacher is interested), Suggest to teachers that they use survey as an optional homework assignment. .

#2… Create a guide of reusable boxes that you can store in one place, and copy from later.

#3…Build your confidence (and LibGuide collection) by selecting a template on a general topic of interest to the library, (e.g., Banned Books) that needs little to no editing

#4…Reach out to teacher’s individually, rather than reaching out to department heads.

#5…Add a Table of Contents box to home page if your Guide has more than one page.

#6…Include a tab/page back to the school’s LMC

#7…If using another guide as a template, make sure all links all.

#8…Offer teacher’s a tour of the guide, (either to them individually, or to the class). If you present the guide to the class, try to keep the presentation under 15 minutes

#9…Have students follow a guide presentation using chrome books or laptops. This gives them hands-on experience!

#10…email link of the guide to relevant teacher and encourage them to link your guide on their class Website

#11…Use the excellent LibGuide Training and tutorials to expand your skills. I especially like the archived Training Webinar Recordings.

#12…Visually Prioritize the boxes and pages of your guide.
