Libguides (Research Guides 2.0)

Yesterday, I spoke at the Faculty Development Winter Workshop about our new Research Guides. We have used a software called libguides (library guides) to develop these new research guides. This allows the librarian to link to websites, embed images, video and RSS feeds. It allows us to upload documents and potentially create guides for other courses. This web editing tool will allow us to add faculty members as colaborators so that we can work with them to create more important and useful guides for our subject matter at Union. It is so much more than just a list of scholarly databases. We are excited about these new Research Guides that can be found at or from My slides of the presentation to the faculty are located below. Please let us know what you think of the new guides.
