Sometimes a spark of creativity and adventurousness can take library outreach to another level. This presentation will exemplify that by briefly covering some of the challenges of library outreach and presenting ways the Macalester College Library has overcome them. With tools like WeVideo, Audacity, iMovie, and LibWizard features, librarians have managed to create fun, low-stakes videos and to incorporate popular crowdsourcing features in resource guides. These efforts have enabled the library to collaborate with non-curricular departments across campus, support campus-wide initiatives, and inform the community of library services. Attendees will gain insight from this experience of using several tools to connect with the community and also consider these tools as an opportunity to provide equitable delivery of library services.
