A Guide to Venice, Italy
Nicole Conroy, 2021 Showcase
A Guide to Venice, Italy: The purpose of this LibGuide is to provide cultural resources, language resources, leisure reading resources, and more on the subject of Venice, Italy. In creating this guide I envisioned it being used in a variety of public library contexts as a supplement to cultural or travel programming, such as an Italian culture club or language program, or perhaps travel-based book clubs. Similarly, a public library could have special cultural series programming that focuses on different cities around the world, and this guide would be suited to complement a unit on Venice. The inclusion of a section tab for reference databases also makes the guide useful in academic libraries, where it can serve as a supplemental resource for students taking Italian language classes, or in conjunction with a hypothetical study abroad program in Venice. The target audience for this guide is adults, from college students to lifelong learners.
