Student Assignment Toolkit Update

What is Maryland AskUsNow!?

New Student Assignment Toolkit Draft

During the December 2015 Liaison Meeting, we discussed changes in the class visit toolkit's, reworded as "student assignment toolkit," size and structure. We're pleased to share our first draft. We hope these changes will further assist you in marketing AskUsNow! during your school visits. 

Please contact Paul and Becca with any feedback by no later than Monday, 2/29/16.  This is a rough draft: the finished product will include pleasing graphics and additional contact information.

June Update: Quick and Dirty AskUsNow! Marketing

June Update:

Promoting a new database or research tool at your library?  The database or research tool announcement can include ways to contact the library to get help learning how to use it (i.e. chat, phone, email, social media).

Remind your school and department liaisons to promote AskUsNow! to summer faculty and teachers (who tend to be adjuncts and teachers who only teach during the summer), and they will relay the promotion to their students.
