Innovative LibGuides Applications: Real World Examples shows both new and experienced users methods to utilize the platform in ways that they may not have previously considered. This includes topics such as website and learning management system integration, digital collections, data-drive decision-making, information literacy instruction, library administration, and a system-wide case study. Each chapter features ideas that you can implement immediately, or over time, as is appropriate to your own needs. Further, they are adaptable-tweak as you see fit! Divided into sections, this book examines different uses and approaches to LibGuides: * Website and learning management system (LMS) integration: examine how LibGuides can be used as, or closely integrated with, the library website and/or your institutions' LMS. Various examples are provided that you may be able to adapt at your own organization. Not every solution worked as anticipated-our authors address this, as well. * Digital collections: Two alternate approaches are presented. One looks at exhibitions and their application as outreach tools. The other looks at creating a digital museum within LibGuides. These are "can't miss" chapters for those that wish to more deeply explore digital collections and LibGuides viability. * Data-drive decision-making: Learn how some institutions are mining and utilizing data collected within LibApps/LibGuides. In both cases, the data examined helped institutions to improve library services while articulating a clear purpose (and use) for each data point. * Information literacy: Explore two different methods for revamping your instruction program through utilization of the platform. * Library administration: Discover how internal and external processes may be augmented through the use of LibApps/LibGuides. * System-wide case study: See how a community college system in North Carolina has each implemented (or not) LibApps/LibGuides on their respective campuses. This section shows how different institutions may decide to use the platform in different ways-all while attempting to improve their own services. Upon completion of this authoritative LITA Guide, readers will come away with the knowledge and tools to maximize their LibGuides experience

Adding to the growing literature on LibGuides is a LITA (Library Information Technology Assn.) guide edited by Dobbs and Sittler. Boasting a suite of services from the flagship LibGuides to the newest CMS platform, the editors discuss digital content products such as Springshare, which doesn't require user coding skills. Building on this characteristic, Dobbs and Sittler have collected chapters on administering, maintaining, designing and developing LibGuides as well as pedagogy and instruction using the system. The audience for this book is very broad, as the editors note: it is meant for current and potential users, new and experienced users. It is also valuable for those who have not migrated to LibGuides2. The chapters convey an even mix of theory, practical information, and figures to aid readers. Verdict: An essential addition to the literature on LibGuides that deserves a place on the shelf of any librarian or library administrator using the platform. * Library Journal * Whatever role you fill at your library -- instruction librarian, web librarian, LibGuides administrator, or guide creator -- you'll find something new, interesting and useful in Innovative LibGuides. It covers a vast spectrum of topics from technology tweaks, to user engagement, to instructional design. It's a thoughtful and deep dive into how to use the LibGuides platform in creative and smart ways. -- Jason Puckett, Georgia State University, author of Modern Pathfinders: Creating Better Research Guides Innovative Libguides Applications is not only chock-full of great, and innovative, ways to make use of the Libguides environment, but also includes clear, step-by-step directions on how to incorporate those innovations into your library. I was definitely impressed by the easy to follow directions as well as the out of the box thinking on how to do everything from incorporating Libguide content into your website, to creating a website or Learning Management System using Libguides to making Libguides and the other Springshare offerings such as LibAnswers and LibCal work for your particular situation. This is a book that will be useful to anyone - and one that will spark innovative ideas of your own! -- Robin Hastings, Director of Technology Services at NEKLS (Northeast Kansas Library System)
