NCompass Live: Modern Pathfinders: Creating Better Research Guides - Online 

Description

Librarians put hours into creating research guides, but usage studies show that they're often confusing, intimidating and generally under-used by students. Learn some effective techniques of instructional design and web usability that any librarian can apply to make online guides better and more useful to your students, whether you are using LibGuides or a home-brew system.

Presenter: Jason Puckett of Georgia State University is the author of the new book Modern Pathfinders: Creating Better Research Guides from ACRL Publications.
