Abstract

As faculty seek innovative ways to develop student-created, blended learning environments, librarians have an opportunity to provide technical tools, training, and support that enhances faculty-librarian collaboration and promotes library instructional services.

LibGuides CMS provides a flexible platform for supporting student-created work, including student profiles, blogs, and simple html/scripting projects. This session discusses how librarians at Georgia Southern University opened up their LibGuides CMS platform to faculty in two programs to provide an online home for a variety of class and program-based projects. In each case, faculty and students were invited onto the platform as collaborative content creators and editors, while librarians provided instruction and technical support. In this way, the library directly enhanced teaching and learning with limited cost and minimal start-up time.

During this session, presenters will discuss practical, pedagogical, and technical considerations related to these collaborations, with special emphasis on how LibGuides CMS supports the creation of customizable platforms for such work. Presenters will further address issues related to access control, discovery, and student privacy.
