This guide is basically an FAQ or a "how to" guide. It is obviously very much unfinished -- it's pretty time consuming to create each piece so progress is slow. Feel free to contact me with specific questions.
Most school librarians use LibGuides as a way to organize resources for students. Below are some examples created by Monroe One Region Librarians that are designed for specific research projects:
Mrs. Smith's Plant, Animal & Water Research Guide
Earth Science Landscape Project
LibGuides are also used as instructional tools - for instance, here is a citation guide. It's not dedicated to one specific research project:
Library Web Pages
Since LibGuides keeps library resources so neat and organized, some libraries are using LibGuides as their library web pages. Here are some examples:
Brighton Twelve Corners Middle School
Most of the information in this guide is for those librarians who are already using LibGuides. If you haven't gotten started yet, you can watch the Building a Guide Basics video. If you're not the video webinar type, you can always contact me for a personalized training session. Or, you can do both: watch the video and then contact me. Whatever works.
