LibGuides

Full Review by the CCL-EAR Committee

LibGuides is a content managment system that allows libraries to create and publish online research guides. The service includes a contnet creation system that requires no knowledge of HTML, web page editing, or web scripting languages. Users can create entire guides using a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor. Users also have access to the LibGuides community site, which includes all of the LibGuides created by other LibGuides subscribers. Guides from other institutions can serve as inspiration for a new guide or they can be transferred to a user’s system to be used as a template.

This product would be useful for community colleges that want to increase or enhance their online content and promote student interaction with the library.
