Librarian Design Share: Inspiration for Library Creatives Poster session Las Vegas Convention Center
Exhibit Hall - Poster Session - Poster 17
Description :

Much of the work librarians do involves creating visual materials such as signage, flyers, displays, instructional pieces, or websites that convey helpful information while looking good. Very few librarians have any kind of formal design training and often rely on personal aesthetic preferences and the opinions and ideas of colleagues. Librarian Design Share (http://librariandesignshare.org) was created by two librarians in 2012 to facilitate connections between design-minded librarians by giving them an online space to share, comment on, and adapt library-related visual materials created by librarians, library staff, and library students. This Wordpress-powered open access repository of creativity currently boasts 136 Wordpress followers, 153 Twitter followers, and about 3,000 average views each month, proving that librarians have a strong interest in design and marketing and benefit from this exchange space.

This poster presentation will feature a selection of Librarian Design Share’s most popular designs and offer design strategies, tools, and best-practices based on these creative works. Visitors to this poster presentation will learn how to adapt or create their own impactful library-related designs and discover how they can benefit from sharing work and become a part of the Librarian Design Share community. In addition to a poster filled with library-related design inspiration, we will include a live demo of our site via laptop and give visitors design strategy cards and mini-mood boards for creative inspiration.

Librarian Design Share has been presented at the 2013 Amigos Member Conference and the Fall 2013 Medical Libraries Association Continuing Education Webinar Series.
