CityLibrary LibGuides Workshops

CityLibrary staff would like to offer a workshop for CityLIS students giving an overview of using LibGuides technology to create subject topic and software guides and incorporating interactive content.

LibGuides is an easy to use content management system used by thousands of libraries in the UK and around the world to create small websites called guides.

In this workshop, we will be giving an overview of the software and demonstrating innovative ways  it is used here at CityLibrary and in other organisations. We will focus on the importance of good guide design and demonstrate how you can create interactive materials by integrating different types of media including videos, quizzes and tutorials into guides.

We hope this will be a useful insight into how libraries are using different technologies to reach students and service users.

There will be the opportunity to feedback, share your creative ideas, have a discussion on good practice and you can ask any questions.

We have 2 dates at the moment:

Friday 16 February from 5.30pm-7pm, register at: 

Thursday 1 March from 10am-11.30am, (this is a repeat of 16 February workshop), register at: 

Best wishes,

Diane Bell (Research Librarian) and Alex Asman (Subject Librarian – Arts).
