Conference News: It was good to see so many people at the annual conference last month! The DLIG-sponsored session “Rethinking our LibGuides to Engage Our Students: Easy DIY LibGuide Usability Testing and Redesign That Works” presented by Wright State librarians Terese DeSimio and Ximena Chrisagis, was an engaging session with almost 100 people in attendance. Also, thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth and chatted. We are excited to have more volunteers and will be in touch soon.
Save the Date: Our Spring Workshop will be Friday, May 15, 2015 at the Voice of America center in West Chester (just north of Cincinnati). Plan to attend–it’s going to be awesome!!
