Sketchnoting is a great way to share information in a visual format that draws attention and is easily shared. Sketchnotes are a bit like hand drawn infographics. If you need to share out information with your library users, sketchnotes are a great tool to do so. Sketchnotes are also great for visual note-taking; a skill that is useful to librarians, library users and students.
Curious about sketchnoting but not sure where to start? “Can’t draw”? Don’t worry! Sketchnoting is not about drawing, it is about ideas. It increases retention and focus as well as improves memory. It is a great way to synthesize information and focus on big ideas. It helps with concentration, stimulates neural pathways, and quite literally makes us smarter. Come join a hands-on session for beginner sketchnoters.
