Libraries invest substantial time in creating and providing patrons with valuable training materials, that they want to see being used. However, driving patron awareness and usage can pose a challenge for many, as patrons are often forced to leave their workflows to access these materials. 

With Lean Library Workflow for LibGuides, libraries can seamlessly integrate Springshare LibGuides and other library training materials into their patrons’ workflows, increasing awareness and usage by delivering materials directly when and where needed, on any academic resource or website.  

In our upcoming webinar, we will delve into how Lean Library empowers libraries to increase the visibility of LibGuides and training materials. Gain insights from real-life success stories, such as Utah State University’s remarkable 450% increase in LibGuide usage achieved through Lean Library’s integration of their LibGuides into their patrons’ workflows. 

Librarians decide where and which LibGuides should be made available, providing vital support and guidance to students throughout their workflow without the need for a physical presence. Join us to uncover how Lean Library can revolutionize your library’s approach, making LibGuides more accessible and impactful for patrons. 

What the webinar covers:

  1. Introduction to LibGuides
  2. Best Practice for LibGuides: What library guidance is most useful to patrons
  3. Overview of Lean Library
  4. Understanding the importance of delivering guidance within the patron workflow
  5. Example from Utah State University
