A. Why have a Virtual Presence for your School Library?


  • Promote the library and services- post hours, contact info/social media, services available, links to major resources ...

  • Connect to the school community - Having a link from the school's main webpage will allow librarians and library programs to be visible to the school community. 


B. Archiving PbWorks Content



C. Creating a Layout for Library Webpages in School Messenger



D. Next Steps

  • Discontinue use of Library wiki now; archive anything you want for future reference. 
  • Use Schoology to stage instructional resources.
  • Work with school Webmaster to add or revise Library page(s) on School Website; Library should have it's own tab or tile (not just attached to your name in Staff Directory).
  • Destiny changes coming: 
    • Simple "webpage" within the OPAC, with WYSIWYG editor and curation tool.
