Revamping STEM LibGuides for Current Student Needs


LibGuides are a staple for libraries to guide students in navigating the world of information resources. What happens, though, when they are left to sit for too long? They quickly become outdated and unhelpful to our students. STEM fields are constantly evolving and it is especially important that our guides are up-to-date to meet the needs of our students. This session will discuss the early stages of the process of updating STEM LibGuides. The session will provide practical insights into the process of revamping LibGuides, including techniques for identifying relevant resources and ideal formatting methods. Readers will gain an understanding of how LibGuides can be updated to ensure that they remain an effective resource for supporting education and research. This project is both in-progress and iterative, as we seek to enhance the library’s ability to provide students with easy access to the most useful information resources available to them.
