Title: Web 2.0 In Your Library
LibGuides is Web 2.0 Goodness at Its Best - Kathy Murray
Looking for an easy, clean, web-accessible way to present your
services, resources, and tips via the web? Interested in a simple way to
advertise new books, provide library updates or medical news flashes to
Twitter, pull in RSS feeds from Google Reader or Delicious, or chat with
your users in real time? Are you at the bottom of the list to get IT time
to update your website?
This talk will cover the basics of
LibGuides from Springshare. LibGuides is a hosted service of online
subject guides. No html coding or other IT experience is needed. Find a
guide you like and copy it (totally acceptable behavior) or begin from
scratch. Guides are two or three columns of boxes. A box contains
different types of information: streaming videos, RSS fees, lists and
links, free text, etc. Often called “subject guides”, this terminology is
too limiting and has a definite academic library history. However, linking
to databases and favorite Websites by subject is just so easy! LibGuides
are so customizable – add your header and footer, choose your colors, and
pick how many columns and what type of boxes you want on each guide.
Is this something we should be considering for a Group Purchasing

hear from you regarding your successes and failures with similar
So You’re Graduating…Now What?
Using Web 2.0 Tools to Push
Quality Information to Alumni and Field Doctors - Janet Tapper, MLS,
Western States Chiropractic College
We spend many years with our healthcare students developing their
information literacy skills and abilities to find and use quality
information; then on graduation day we give them a fond farewell and
abruptly end their access to our resources. However we can prepare our
soon to be alumni for this event and soften the impact by systematically
teaching use of web 2.0 tools such as search alerts, RSS feeds, My NCBI
and Loansome Doc to keep them informed, up to date, with greater access to
critical literature. We can also teach/remind our students the wonders of
public libraries, WorldCat and the inter-library loan system. By working
with these graduating students and field docs, we can create enduring ties
to our libraries and extend our service to these patrons. Presentation
will cover the syllabus and course materials, student and faculty response
to the program, and the role that this type of course plays in library
marketing and strategic planning.
