  • Easy to use
    Limited if any tech knowledge needed

    Ubiquity – close to 3,000 higher ed library subscriptions – just for basic LibGuides
  • Incoming Students’ Guide for undergraduates
  • Library guide for graduate students in the education program
  • LibGuides Community – Springshare

    When you set up a guide – you can set it to either allow or disallow other LibGuides users from recycling your material

    “Best Of” guide of guides
  • Video tutorials

    Chat widget
  • As a presentation tool:

    Brings together and displays
    classroom activities,
    resources,
    information about relevant library services
    Makes them available throughout the semester
    Updates immediately available –no need to resend the slides/materials to students

    Search boxes directly accessing library catalog /database resources
    Poll Everywhere
    SoftChalk
    PowerPoint
    Prezi
    YouTube
    Google Docs
  • 3) Perpetual Beta
    -- Truly formative
    – changes to my teaching approach class-by-class

    Can be summative for that one, individual session, but not comparative

    Data not suitable for comparative analysis because my teaching approach is in perpetual beta
  • Sara Miller from
    Michigan State University
    Has provided step-by-step instructions online to embedding a Google Form into a LibGuide
