1. I noticed that ANTS seems to be dedicated to creating tutorials for e-resources. Do you accept other types of library tutorials as well such as Information Literacy ones?
Answer: Yes. Although ANTS was originally conceived as being a method or enabling development of e-resource tutorials across institutions, we have recieved a lot of questions from people who would like to see other types of tutorials included as well. These include Information Literacy Tutorials, Literacy Tutorials (for Public Libraries), Data & GIS Tutorials, Tutorials for Handicapped users, and any other type of tutorial that there is a demand for in the library world. We welcome all ideas and all content. Ideas for new types of tutorials can be added onto the Wiki.
2. Are you only asking people to develop tutorials for the e-resources currently on the list.
Answer: No. Anyone working with e-resources knows that databases are aquired by new vendors, old vendors go out of business, new e-resources are continuously being born, and that old e-resources (that were previously not that popular) can become popular. Hence, we anticipate that many people will want to develop tutorials for e-resources not on our list. That is why we chose a dynamic wiki as our home for all e-resources. All we ask is that you add the name of any e-resource you want to develop a tutorial for, onto the Wiki (it is very easy to do using Easy Edit). This way others will know that a tutorial needs to be created, or that you are creating one.
