LibGuides for Equity and Inclusion
LibGuides are essential teaching tools for synchronous and asynchronous research. The University of La Verne has a diverse student body that includes traditional undergraduates, master’s and doctoral students, and non-traditional adult learners. In an effort to improve access and inclusivity, the librarians at Wilson Library redesigned their LibGuides to make them mobile friendly, inclusive, and more visually accessible and appealing. They incorporated web accessibility design as well as well as best practices for creating and designing LibGuides, including soliciting feedback from student library workers. In this session we will present strategies and research to help librarians create LibGuides that are more meaningful for students.
