This workshop is dedicated to the curation, creation, and management of subject research guides. Workshop leaders will discuss and demonstrate a framework that systematically identifies core, unique, and unfamiliar research resources using arts administration and museum studies guides as examples. Participants will be invited to workshop their own guides on any topic of choice while guided through a step-by-step process. Questions about research guides will be addressed: What strategies can librarians use to efficiently collect data about digital resources included in subject guides across institutions? How do you evaluate resources that are commonly recommended and included in subject guides and what tools can be used to help visualize and assess this data? How does format dictate the quantity and organization of titles on subject guides? Participants will also be challenged to think about systemic bias in library collections when identifying core resources based on frequency. “Subject Guides in the Digital Age: A Workshop on Curating the Most Relevant, Inclusive, and Current Resources” will appeal to all teaching, reference, and subject liaison librarians. Personal lap-tops will be necessary.
