Hello readers, and welcome to our first post of 2021! The world sure looks different than it did a year ago, doesn’t it? Wherever the last whirlwind of a year has taken you, no doubt some adjustments to your work have been made. Many of us are working from home, teaching remotely, or having to rethink the way we approach our work. In some cases, this may mean relying more heavily on eye-catching materials in order to capture the attention of your students.

Our first call for submissions of the year is for design-centered instruction handouts and related materials. We’ll be compiling several of these into one post so if you don’t see it posted right away, don’t worry!

Since its been a while (and some of you might be new readers), here’s a refresher of what we require upon submission:

  • your name
  • your email address
  • your library
  • a photo, file or link to your work online
  • the software used to create your design (if applicable)
  • a brief description of your design (see previous posts for examples)
  • If you are submitting designs made in Canva, please note that we will follow up with you for information on additional characteristics and considerations made when creating your design. And to stay true to the spirit of Librarian Design Share, we are also requiring that you share a link to an editable copy of your design.
  • All work will be published on this site under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported license.

As always, we are accepting all kinds of submissions. Find more information on our page on Submitting Your Design.
