Understanding the structure of a URL helps students understand how information is stored and accessed online—it is one of the basic skills at the foundation of information and digital literacy. Teaching the ins and outs of servers and subdomains can be challenging, which is why we’ve been hard at work creating simple and engaging video tutorials to help you teach these imperative skills to students.

THINKING POINTS:

How could your library use photographs to promote library services, events and activities?Does your library Twitter account use Instaweather to provide a daily update?Do you have a permission form available so that when you take photographs of clients or events you have their agreement for those images to be used and shared online?How easy is it for clients to contribute digital photographs to your library collection (eg. local history)?Could you use photography in library programming (eg. how-to classes or competitions)?The Getty Museum celebrates the Instagram photographs taken by museum visitors by adding them to their Insta-Getty Pinterest board
