Presentation Description

LibGuides is a Web 2.0 information management and knowledge sharing system. Lyn University has been using LibGuides to promote library use, highlight special collections and completely revamp research guides. During this workshop, participants will get an overview of Lynn's efforts, learn the advantages and limitations of LibGuides, get an idea of how to develop a basic LibGuide and see how to add Web 2.0 components such as del.icio.us tags, RSS feeds, embedded video and interactive polls. Participants will also explore how Libguides can be integrated into course management systems and social networks, particularly Facebook.
