Interested in LibGuides, but haven't had the time to dive in? This workshop is your opportunity for hands-on work time with your own LibGuides. You will have the chance to submit questions and topic requests ahead of time- you will decide what we cover! The instructor will review any questions or issues submitted, go over some tips and tricks for creating fantastic guides, take questions, and be there to help while you get to work on your own guides. Because this workshop will be participant-driven and emphasize individual work time, all skill levels are welcome! We will also discuss LibWizard, which can be used to create surveys, forms, and tutorials.
