Library intranets have long served as valuable tools to connect attorneys and patrons with finding aids and links to online resources, but they can also be leveraged to offer access to much more. This session will highlight types of information currently being surfaced within library intranets, including embedded database content and custom apps developed by librarians. Part inspiration and part implementation, this session will include specific examples of content delivery within library pages, along with concrete steps that librarians and information professionals can use to identify, structure, and expose data within their organization’s online environment. For librarians without an IT background, the session will also include practical guidance on next technical steps toward implementation, to enhance collaboration between the library and IT in creating intranets that add value for library users.
