While students may use Google when doing research, LibGuides offers a complimentary way of reaching users at the level they are most comfortable. LibGuides provide a mechanism for mediating quality resource tools in a format conducive to varied learning styles and audiences. The first part of this presentation will focus on some of the ways SIUE Lovejoy Library has used LibGuides and how to use these guides to enhance lifelong learning through services, instruction and assessment. The second part of the session, the University of Central Florida will show how widgets and filters are used to incorporate database links by subject and type of resource, followed by a demonstration of database usage statistics. Attendees can expect to learn how LibGuides can be applied at any library to help researchers at any level of experience. During the session attendees can access an interactive poll from their mobile device to provide feedback for the discussion.
