LibGuides at Dalhousie University
I wanted to draw attention to the collection of subject guides at Dalhousie University in Canada. They have been created by the subject librarians there using the Springshare application LibGuides. The remakable thing about them is that there are 148 of them! Yes, 148! This is not unique either - Utah State University have 53. Many libraries are now using LibGuides as an easy way to store content (including RSS feeds, custom search engines, podcasts etc.) .This must be easier and quicker than some other methods being used around Universities.....Better still Facebook has now got an add-on so that students can access the guides through Facebook: they use this to set up their chosen guide. Very interesting.
