    • Specialized guide for research faculty *semi-formalized* partnership between the library and the
      Office of Research Programs
      The Provost read my guide! Hence, the ESF logo appears…
    • Add value to pages – create interest in your guide
      Combined RSS Feed from Scopus and Web of Science – used Yahoo Pipes and Feedburner to set up feeds

    • Collaboration between Office of Instruction and Graduate Studies and Library Staff
      This guide born from a request to present to a graduate group about new Dissertation/Thesis Guidelines
    • Found elements for this guide by searching SpringShare site.
    • Possible Pitfalls
      Must approach some offices/individuals with tact – don’t want to alienate stakeholders
      What makes YOU the expert?
      Can spend a lot of time making guides!
    • Value outweighs “cost”
      Fantastic ROI – as more faculty see guides, asked to create more guides
      Asked to present more frequently to classes/groups
      Good for students – guides are highly used and valued
      Good for faculty – great way to present/disseminate information
    • Woo Hoo -We’re Number Nine!!
    • ~Thank You~
