How long have you been making LibGuides?
I published my first guide in December 2011.
How long have you been a librarian?
I earned my MLIS in 2009.
Where do you look to find LibGuide inspiration?
I try to keep the end user in mind when developing a guide. I want to offer a variety of information sources for a subject. I also have some experience with web usability, so I try to keep those elements in mind as well. I have be inspired by the LibGuides community and also feedback from students who have found a guide helpful.
What are some tips you would like to share with others who might be copying your guide?
This Olympics guide was fun and easy to pull in visually appealing elements and sometimes for other academic subjects that just isn't possible. My advice is to think how you can present text information in a different way.
What is your favorite thing about LibGuides?
I love the community aspect of LibGuides and the willingness to share with each other. I am looking forward to seeing the changes to our guides with LibGuides 2.
