Library Documentation Depository

In the initial stages of development. Please check back!

Why reinvent the wheel? Projects are easier to begin with inspiration. It is easier to craft documentation from examples than to begin from scratch, and a depository is only as useful as its submissions.

This depository contains documentation submitted by CARLI member libraries, for the benefit of the broader community.

About the Documentation

  • Each document is noted with the name of the institution by whom it was submitted, the date it was added to the depository, and the date the link was last checked for availability.
    Example: (author: CARLI Office; posted 10/6/2017; link checked 10/12/2017)
  • The documentation is not peer-reviewed; it is up to those using the documentation to determine whether the information is still valid, accurate, and of use for their purpose.

How to Submit

Do you have documentation to share? Please do!
New categories and subcategories will be added to this page as documentation is received.
Sample topics of documentation we'd love you to submit:

  • Library privacy policy
  • Library interlibrary loan policy
  • Annual reports (internal for the library and/or external to stakeholders)
  • Newsletters
  • Library marketing and promotional materials
  • Event descriptions
  • Form templates
  • Workflow visualizations
  • Video tutorials
  • How-to guides, such as how to use the OPAC, search databases, log in to services, find the library, etc.
  • Other topics of interest

You can send files (.PDF, .DOCX, .XLSX, etc.) or webpage links to CARLI Office staff members Lorna Engels, and/or Debbie Campbell, for inclusion. Before submitting, please make sure that you have appropriate permissions to share.
