LibGuides Workshops - Summer 2016

This is the homepage for the Summer 2016 LibGuides workshops, including information on specific issues covered and best practices.

To do list:

  • Analyze word choice and cut down on unnecessary words
  • Edit any large text blocks
  • Eliminate jargon (e.g., Instead of "search for periodicals," use "find articles.")

Why do these things?

Word choice matters. Users have a harder time understanding library jargon, and poor word choice can overwhelm and confuse them.
