LibGuides for Academic Libraries
Are your patrons using Google and Wikipedia when doing library research? Introduce them to LibGuides - the librarian created portals to high quality research information. You, the librarian, are the key to successful research. Nobody knows research better! With LibGuides you help patrons find the stuff they need and show them information they didn't even know existed. LibGuides' flexibility and ease of use empowers librarians of any technical skill level to quickly and effortlessly create content-rich, web 2.0 multimedia guides. Using LibGuides widgets and our extensive API, you can distribute content into other websites, blogs, and courseware systems. Integrate web chat inside your guides and patrons can ask you for help in real time, while doing research. Easy integration with popular social networks (Twitter, Facebook) connects you with patrons wherever they are. This leads to an increased use of your library's resources and services. LibGuides is a fully hosted system (so we handle all IT issues for you), and a mobile-friendly version of the system is included free of charge! Spend only a few minutes using LibGuides and you will be impressed - and your patrons will be too!
With the optional upgrade to LibGuides CMS include LTI integration so guides seamlessly integrate into all LTI-compliant LMS systems.
