This is a reminder that the National Adult Literacy Database (NALD) has taken steps to enhance its popular online library.
NALD library users have the opportunity to post their comments when accessing and making use of online resources.
This interactive feature is designed to help promote the high calibre of the NALD library offerings and also to assist users in their search for resources that are best suited to their purposes.
When opening a NALD library document or other resource, users will see the Comments entry point to the right of the library page, between the Download button and the Citation format options. Users are not restricted by word count and can add their thoughts on the comments of other contributors in addition to their own views on the resource itself.
“We like users to take advantage of this participatory element of our library as comments often stimulate discussion among visitors who use a particular resource,” said Bill Stirling, CEO of NALD. “This library feature also gives us an opportunity to get to know the individuals who turn to us for resources.”
To integrate the comments feature into its website, NALD used the third-party services of Disqus, known for its real-time posting and its intuitive online experience.
NALD takes great pride in the work it does to preserve resources produced over time by the literacy and essential skills community of Canada. Over 6,000 full-text documents, categorized according to Research and Learning Materials, are housed in NALD’s digital library. NALD also includes multimedia resources in its online offerings.
