Help us INSPIRE others
New Messaging Campaign for INSPIRE
The INSPIRE online resource library is not new. Established in 1998, INSPIRE is a collection of online academic databases and other information resources for research, test prep, continuing learning, and providing resources for Indiana history that can be accessed for free by all Indiana residents. More importantly, INSPIRE is a trusted source of research information. With the prevalence of non-vetted internet content, now it is more important than ever for researchers to have access to reliable scholarly, peer-reviewed information.
The INSPIRE team along with their partners at the Indiana State Library are reintroducing INSPIRE to the Indiana public with a new positioning statement of “Lifelong learning library for Hoosiers.” This reintroduction will include updates to the website navigation, a social media push and continuing marketing of all the features and databases that are offered to Indiana residents through the INSPIRE online library.
INSPIRE offers free access to Teaching Books & Book Connections — Find fun activities, helpful information for readers, and materials for professionals.
Many of you already incorporate the INSPIRE databases or landing pages within your local library websites. We want to help you promote these great resources, so we are providing you a set of social posts for use on your website or social media pages. You can choose to use the original set, or choose to add your own organization’s logo to the co-branded posts to enhance both the INSPIRE and your own brand. We’ve also provided a suggested caption with each post.
