Librarians April Aultman Becker and Veronica Arellano Douglass (who work as a medical librarian and a reference and instructional librarian, respectively) note that "[m]uch of the work we do as librarians involves creating flyers, displays, handouts, websites and other designs that convey helpful information while looking good." Whether promoting a community event or providing a tutorial for using a new database, design matters in the library world. Librarian Design Share provides a space for librarians of all stripes to talk about graphic design and share their work. This blog was created specifically for those without a formal background in graphic or web design but who would like to pick up some new skills and ideas. On this website, visitors can get inspired by browsing Designs by Type (including Displays, Infographics, and Webdesign) or Designs by Software (including Adobe InDesign, Google Slides, MS Word, and Pixlr). Readers are invited to help build this collection by submitting their own designs.
