The method you use to share curated collections is important if you want it to be easily accessed and well used. Discuss with teachers where the easiest location might be for their students to access curated collections. Many librarians use their library websites for presenting curated information.
Examples of curated collections
At the Heaton Learning Resource Centre in Christchurch, librarian Jane Boniface supports inquiry learning using a web page. This links out to databases, curated collections and also to book resources within the library.

Saskia Hill, librarian at Cashmere High School in Christchurch, has a research tab on their library’s website, which opens a drop-down menu for each department. This has a number of curated collections related to reading for pleasure, NCEA achievement standards and inquiry topics.
She has arranged some subject areas’ collections according to NCEA level, others are arranged by year level and some by subject. This offers a personalised response to the needs of the teachers within each department.
