Presentation Description

The majority of academic libraries are working to expand online outreach. However, with budgets under constant scrutiny and paid technologies a new expense, the work has too often been limited by the resources at hand. Library+ explores free options that can help librarians looking to expand instruction online and create valuable archival resources for future use. Examining the results of a small scale study conducted in 2012/2013, Library+ will look hard at results and provide a practical direction for librarians looking to dip their toes into online outreach without taking the plunge into a paid services.
