Making of introduce databases site for beginners: “Here comes the Database Rangers: Database Tutorials for Members of Shimane University”
This paper shows the process used to create a site to explain database use and clarifies several points of improvement. Shimane University Library has a project team to educate library users. This team created and released a site for beginners called, “Here comes the Database Rangers: Database Tutorials for Members of Shimane University” in May, 2017. The site contains some comics that introduced how to use the most commonly used databases in the library. Those databases have been anthropomorphized by the illustrator.
The process used to create this site had a four stages. First, a proposal was made and its contents were explained to the team members. Second, the databases used by the institute were requested to permit the creation of images that anthropomorphized and illustrated them. Third, the images were produced. And fourth, copyright agreements were signed by the illustrator and TOEI COMPANY, LTD.
However, the process used to create this site had some problems. The first problem was that an initial agreement was not made with the illustrator. The second problem was that the library staff did not notice the possibility of copyright infringement until just before the site was completed. It is necessary to prevent recurrence of these problems.
