D08: Content strategy in LibGuides: Preliminary results of an international environmental scan
In 2019, librarians from the University of Toronto conducted a survey to determine how administrators of LibGuides systems at academic institutions managed the content creation, maintenance, and oversight of their LibGuides. This session will summarize the results of that survey and implications they may have for institutions that use LibGuides.

D27 (Seminar): Build Custom Bootstrap Web Components Instantly with Bootstrapr
This seminar is available to in-person attendees in Austin only. It will not be viewable via the Online Conference. 

The Bootstrapr application is free and open source software which allows users of Third Party Applications built on the Bootstrap front-end framework (LibGuides, Sakai and other LMSs, etc.), to leverage standard bootstrap components to better structure their content, and provide a common interface style and clearer affordances. I will demonstrate how to use the various tools in Bootstrapr to build Bootstrap components to rapidly build a LibGuide—all without writing a single line of code.
