Description/Abstract

LibGuides is a Web 2.0 content management and library knowledge sharing system growing in popularity among researchers. This poster session will demonstrate how University of Central Florida (UCF) Libraries started using LibGuides for teaching, learning, research, and delivering information on a Web 2.0 platform. LibGuides provide course-related instruction and general research guides aimed to help students get started with research in a specific subject area, information literacy guides, and other relevant instructions. LibGuides allows collaboration between the librarians and the faculty to create user-friendly, efficient electronic resources that meet the research needs of a particular department, class, or an assignment. Partnering with a subject expert librarian, the faculty member introduces their students to discipline-based research databases, print resources, and authoritative website for specific projects or assignments. It is also a good way to bring the library to distance education or online students. The guides provide dynamic content including videos, pictures, delicious bookmarks, RSS feeds, IM, search tools, and etc. The poster session will display how UCF Libraries use the Lib Guides for research, teaching, learning, and collaboration. The session will also provide the fall 2009 semester usage statistics.
