The power of page-level linking to draw visitors
Speaker: Marie Concannon, Librarian IV, Head, Government Information and Data Archives, University of Missouri
The University of Missouri’s Prices and Wages by Decade guide is based largely on page-level links to HathiTrust and other digital libraries. It has brought a phenomenal 4.5 million hits to MU’s website, and is the 3rd largest referrer to HathiTrust. Now that Google-digitized books in HathiTrust have persistent links, it is easier than ever to maintain indexes like this one. In this session, you will learn the elements of success so you can create a similar guide on a topic of interest to you.
