Embedding Creativity into Your Guides Meredith Kostek, Lewis and Clark Law School

When you start thinking creatively there's no end to what you can achieve. But sometimes you aren't sure if your tools can keep up with you. Using different embedding techniques and sources, I've added creative elements to many of my LibGuides. From videos, to interactive slides, to Padlet timelines, to Canva created advertising and newsletters, there's no end to the innovative ways you can communicate with your patrons. This presentation will take you through the nuts and bolts of embedding, then on a creative journey opening up the possibilities of what you can add to your own guides.

Products Covered: LibGuides and LibWizard

She received her B.A. in American History with a concentration in jazz history from DePauw University, her J.D. from the University of Toledo College of Law, and her M.L.I.S. from Indiana University in Indianapolis.
