Getting subject librarians to trust and promote MetaLib can be challenging. Integrating MetaLib into existing workflows for creating course and subject guides has been an effective strategy for engaging our staff. In addition the development of local web-based tools has made the content of MetaLib more transparent. Staff are able to browse dynamic lists of resources available in MetaLib and the extent to which they are cross-searchable, lists of new resources, the assignment of categories to resources, and the placement of deep links.
