|deg farrelly is the Media Librarian for the
Arizona State University Libraries.
How long have you been making LibGuides?
About 5 years, since ASU Libraries came into the service. Prior to that similar information was prepared in individual hard coded HTML pages
How long have you been a librarian?
Coming on 37 years. I completed my degree at Rutgers in December 1975, and landed my first position at York College of PA in September 1976
Where do you look to find LibGuide inspiration?
"I see so much further when I stand on another person's shoulders" I look at what others have done, but to be honest, mostly within my own library!
What are some tips you would like to share with others who might be copying your guide?
Edit! Because my university is SO large I have listed many resources that may not be appropriate/important for other schools. Don't feel the need to include everything in my Guide.
What is your favorite thing about LibGuides?
Ease of generation and editing! I can develop a guide within minutes… and make changes on the fly!
