I feel as if I did successfully meet the goals I set for myself at the end of last year.
Promotion of the Library: In September, I created an Instagram account for our library. Here, I share pictures of all of the library books that I am reading, fliers for library events and when new books arrive. I reached out to all of the teachers via email at least twice, once asking for teachers to submit book and DVD requests. I got a huge response from teachers from that email, so I was really excited.
Ebooks: I placed a set of directions as to how to access the library's ebooks next to each computer. I also encouraged students to use them when the physical copy of the book they asked for was already checked out.
MyLibraryNYC: I reminded all teachers of the program. I do not think that many used it, but I do think that they students were using their cards.
Web-searching: At the end of last year, I found a technique called the C.R.A.P. method of searching (Currency, Reliability, Authority, Purpose/POV). It's effective because it is so easy to remember. I used it this year, all year, with much success. The teachers loved it and the students remembered it. I even had a student tell me she shared it with her college professor who wanted to use it!
