The promotions guide outlines the activities identified to promote the RRC Guides collection.
Its purpose is to ensure that promotional activities continue to take place moving forward.
“GUIDES” or "RRC GUIDES" was determined to be the most generic and user-friendly term without being redundant or jargon. "LibGuides" is the name of the Springshare software product, but does not adequately explain to students and other users what Guides are and what they do.
Guides should contain resources within the collection and the web RELEVANT to the subject the guide is about. Sources should be up-to-date. An exhaustive list is not necessary as this is the launching off spot of research, not a catalog of all possible sources.
Guides should be focused on a topic, a course, an assignment, an outcome (like finding grants), etc. Huge, unwieldy guides are hard to navigate. These guides are jumping off spots for users, not textbooks. Keep It Simple!
Any repetitive information (ex. "How to use OneSearch") that might appear on multiple guides (or pages) should be excluded from Guides. This type of information should be its own Guide and depending on content, included in Library 101 subject area. All guides have links pointing toward Library 101 content.
