Create a Libguide

What is a LibGuide?

You're looking at one! A LibGuide is a webpage that you can create using a simple system with a minimal learning curve. It was designed by and for libraries, and is widely used at universities worldwide by librarians and faculty. The ATSU Memorial Library uses them to offer information about its resources and how to use or access them. We support faculty in creating and using them to support their teaching and research activities with more flexibility and speed than other available options.

Some Benefits:

  • Rapid & flexible updating - think of a change, make the change, see the change in a less than a minute
  • Allows you to easily use and reuse other creators' content
  • Options for creation:
    • You may do it entirely yourself within our system
    • You may work with us to make changes as you choose
    • You may ask us to make changes for you

 

How Can I Use a LibGuide?

You can use a LibGuide to communicate with your students or peers for any number of purposes. This resource is not limited to specific people or a specific timeframe unless you design them to be, so they can be used to share information with students who are not currently enrolled in a course, or with peers at another university, or with peers working on a project that requires rapid updating under your own control.

Some Potential Activities:

  • Class support
  • Club information
  • Shared workspace
  • Research projects
  • Department information
  • Lab information
