Featured Promotional Ideas
Use our Featured Promotional Ideas to spread the word about your library’s Teen Health & Wellness subscription. Check out these suggestions for school and public librarians on ways to better promote and use Teen Health & Wellness from students at Kent State University’s School of Library and Information Science:
- Place shelf talkers with the Teen Health & Wellness logo, URL, and login information on the shelf with the books on depressions, teen pregnancy, drugs, etc. Teens looking for books on these subjects will be reminded to look for information online too.
- Have the student council or Key Club brainstorm ways to promote the database as a service project. For example, they could create a short video spot that could be included on morning announcements as a tie-in with Red Ribbon Week (the annual campaign to raise awareness about alcohol, tobacco, drug, and violence prevention.).
- Ask the Teen Advisory Board to write an article for the school newspaper or library newsletter about Teen Health & Wellness. Teens could create videos or podcasts showing how the database can be used. Post the submissions on the media center Web site.
- Hang posters on restroom doors with bookmarks taped to the bottom of the posters for students to take along as a reminder. Place bookmarks in the health section of the library. Insert bookmarks when students check out books from the library. —Eileen Whited, Fredericksburg High School, Fredericksburg, TX
