Step Up Your Resource Curation with INFOhio's BLUEcloud Course Lists 
Presented by: Janah Shumaker

Join INFOhio as we demonstrate our newest BLUEcloud product, BLUEcloud Course Lists, a resource list management tool that integrates directly with your library catalog, INFOhio’s digital resources, and librarian and teacher vetted materials. Learn how BLUEcloud Course Lists can help you curate resource lists of both physical and digital materials for your students and teachers and collaborate with teachers to build instructional partnerships. Participants in this session will learn how to use BLUEcloud Course Lists with their library catalog and INFOhio tools like ISearch and Educator Tools, where to receive training to use Course Lists, and ideas for how to display and use Course Lists with students and teachers. 

Lead from the Library: Sharing Quality Instructional Materials for K-12 
Presented by: Emily Rozmus and Sarah Mowery

INFOhio provides Ohio educators, students, and families with no-cost, equitable access to quality instructional materials. Research shows that when educators have access to quality, standards-aligned instructional materials it makes a difference in their teaching practice as well as the instruction students receive. School librarians can take the lead when sharing and identifying quality instructional materials that are flexible and adaptive, inclusive teaching, research-based, standards-aligned, and user friendly. Find out how INFOhio’s digital resources support these indicators of quality instructional materials and how you can use them to help your students achieve success inside and outside of the library.
