Show Off Your E-Resources the Easy Way

E-resources are the hidden gems of every library. As a librarian, I'd like to think patrons know about the wealth of knowledge and information available to them with just a few clicks of the mouse. Unfortunately, many library patrons are not even aware that e-resources exist at the library, much less how to go about using them to their advantage. I was surprised to find that many e-reader users and library goers don't even know you can download free e-books from the library! For busy librarians without adequate staff or time, getting the word out about e-resources may seem to be a low priority.

The ready-to-go e-resource templates in LibraryAware make it quick and simple to market your library's digital collections. These templates feature clean layouts with tablets and e-readers, which you can customize by swapping out book jackets and images. Text is built into into all the templates to save you valuable time -- just fill in your event or resource information and you're done!

Show Off Your E-Resources

Three ways to use these templates:

  • Cross-promote events and e-resources by pairing book jackets and images.
  • Promote reader discovery services.
  • Provide step-by-step instructions for downloading free e-books from your library. 

I would love to know how you are promoting your library's e-resources. One of the great things about working with LibraryAware is witnessing the creativity of users in promoting all the services their libraries offer. Send me a link to your website or email a copy of a promotional flyer; I'd love to see what you come up with!
