Texas State University: Creating Unique Assessments w/ LibGuides & LibWizard
6:30pm – 6:45pm
I've been using LibGuides and LibWizard together to create unique assessments for my library instruction classes (both upper-level, and lower-level). The ease of editing allows me to revise the questions/answers depending on the assignment that the class is working on.
Rasmussen College: Using LibGuides as a Video Repository
9:15am – 9:30am

Limestone College: Freshman Success & Meeting First Year Needs

This presentation shows how the creation of a guide just for freshmen has increased student retention and has raised freshmen GPA scores. The guide contains information about financial success, study skills, title IX, campus activities, links to the cafeteria menus, and more.
Penn State University: A Link in Every Syllabus
3:00pm – 3:15pm
Putting the guide into every course syllabus would theoretically increase use of the guide. In this flash presentation, I will go over the rationale for integrating a LibGuide in this way, how I marketed the adoption of this guide, and more.
California University of PA: Using Browser Tools to Manage Your LibGuides Appearance
3:15pm – 3:30pm
Aimed at LibGuides admins, I will focus on how to use browser tools to identify the names of CSS identities in order to modify them with custom CSS declarations to control appearance. I’ll also discuss using ColorZilla to identify colors in order to match campus graphics colors.
The Citadel Library: Using LibGuides as a Museum Content Management System
9:45am – 10:00am
As a way to supplement the museum, I have created more in-depth LibGuides about particular exhibits. Also, as a way to preserve the content of the topical exhibits, I have been preserving their content and images of the display as pages attached to the main museum guide.
Temple University: Creating Attractive & Engaging LibGuides
10:00am - 10:15am
When we’re designing LibGuides as learning tools, how do we make decisions about the language we use to describe resources or the number of databases we link to? How can we best use the LibGuides CMS to create guides that undergraduate students like and find easy to use?
This flash presentation will explore issues of guide usability, focusing on the design and content of guides for specific university courses.
Fairfield University: Creating an Academic Integrity Tutorial
12:00pm - 12:15pm
In the spring of 2016, we took on the task of creating an Academic Integrity Tutorial that would aim to teach students the following concepts: 1.) Emphasize the importance of academic integrity as critical to membership in our Jesuit community, 2.) Foster mindsets that fully participate in scholarly conversation by engaging sources effectively and ethically, and 3.) Support the development of skills needed to avoid plagiarism.
We needed a platform to host this tutorial that could be easily adapted without a lot of programming skills, be cost effective, easily customizable to fit the needs of any student group, and usable on and off campus. We found that with our LibGuides CMS platform we could accomplish all of these goals.
Caldwell University: Adding Interactivity to Online Information Literacy Instruction
2:00pm – 2:15pm
This flash presentation will detail how we used LibWizard to: 1) create a self-paced online academic integrity workshop, 2) develop an instructional tutorial to help new students navigate locating books using LOC call numbers, 3) migrate our in-person APA citation workshop into a web-based tutorial for asynchronous learning.
