Web 2.0 Week at WMRLS ~ Today: LibGuides

“LibGuides is the amazingly popular, easy to use, web 2.0 content management and library knowledge sharing system. Libraries use it to create attractive multimedia content, share knowledge and information, and promote library resources to the community.” (LibGuides website)

The Smith College Libraries started using LibGuides as a replacement for our linear, HTML based class guides. We soon discovered that LibGuides was not only great for class guides, but also research guides. We’ve begun replacing many of our old HTML research guides with LibGuides as well.
