Submission Guidelines

Thanks for your interest in the Montana Information Literacy Alliance! We’d love for you to join the conversation. If you would like to post instructional materials or a discussion topic, send an email to mgjeltema@mtech.edu or erin.baucom@mso.umt.edu to be granted posting permissions; you should only need to do this initially.

This site is hosted through wordpress, so you’ll need an account in order to produce, interact with, and contribute to the ongoing discussions.

To keep this resource organized and useful, it is important to have a standardized set of descriptors and tags. When posting a new discussion topic, please adhere to the following guidelines.

-Please indicate your name and library/school before the main text of your post.

-Include an annotated list of urls corresponding to any embedded links after the main text of your post.

-Before posting, observe the “Categories & Tags” options. Select the appropriate categories where your content should be posted. You do not need to limit your post to one category; if you feel your lesson is applicable to both academic libraries and high school libraries, for example, select “For Academic Libraries” and “For School Libraries” from the “Lessons” subcategories. All lesson plans should select the “Lessons” category.

-Please select any and all appropriate tags from the given options. If you feel your content is not adequately described by the established tags, and you feel there are additional tags that would improve description and retrieval of relevant content, please indicate your suggestions in email form directed to mgjeltema@mtech.edu or erin.baucom@mso.umt.edu.

-While not necessary, having a “Featured Image” associated with your content is highly encouraged.

Any additional questions, comments, or concerns can be directed to mgjeltema@mtech.edu or erin.baucom@mso.umt.edu. If you would like to become more involved in MILA, please let us know!

Thanks for supporting MILA, and thanks for supporting Montana libraries!
