Abstract

AbstractEngaging studio-based design students with library resources can be a challenge, especially since they rely heavily on skills and concepts learned during time spent in the studio. However, if librarians rethink traditional outreach strategies and meet these unique users at their point of need by experimenting with innovative tools that allow for creativity, they can help design students become more aware of the useful services libraries offer. In this article the authors explore how the social media site Pinterest can better connect libraries with visually oriented students.
