Librarians attend Conference to improve research support
Recently three of the OWHL instructional librarians traveled to Southborough to attend a conference sponsored by Nelinet focusing on best practices in the use of a product called Libguides. The product, recently purchased by the OWHL, was designed to support librarians in creating academic research guides for students. Conference presentations covered effective techniques in creating individual guides and ways of implementing them in classroom teaching. The Libguides product at PA, dubbed OWHLGuides have already debuted during summer session and this fall in several of the history classes. For an example of one of the OWHLGuides, click here.
As the replacement for the Research Wiki, students have found the OWHLguides to be easier to use and more appealing (i.e. they look “cooler”). We look forward to hearing your input on this exciting new product.
