Presentation Description

While the library instruction class is often regarded as the center piece for teaching information literacy skills, academic librarians can use effective library home page design to support information literacy 24/7. In this presentation, an academic library Web page designer will provide best practices for library home page design and discuss the importance of using assessment tools, such as surveys and task-based usability testing, demonstrating how effective library home page design can assist students in accessing “information effectively and efficiently” (ACRL Information Literacy Standard 2).
