Monday, April 8, 2013

, Reference/Subject Librarian, California State University, Chico
, Head, User Experience, UNC-Chapel Hill Libraries

With tools such as LibGuides, librarians are able to quickly create course/subject guides for their classes or departments. But do they have sustainability, accuracy, and quality? University Library at UNC is shifting from encouraging librarians to create more guides for every information need to identifying high-quality, high-use subject guides that can be easily maintained over time. Find out how UNC inventoried and assessed the existing subject guides. Learn about the workflow process developed to take on the maintenance of guides. Bowen discusses the value of embedding LibGuides in learning management (LMS) systems. Learn how to add course-level guides generated through LibGuides into Blackboard Vista and Blackboard Learn shells. Bowen shares survey results of students in a communications course and describes what they think of visible links in the LMS to guides and what benefits they derive from this placement.
