Library Subject Guides: A Case Study of Evidence-Informed Library Development
Wakeham, Maurice; Roberts, Angharad; Shelley, Jane; Wells, Paul
Journal of Librarianship and Information Science, v44 n3 p199-207 Sep 2012
This paper describes the process whereby a university library investigated the value of its subject guides to its users. A literature review and surveys of library staff, library users and other libraries were carried out. Existing library subject guides and those of other higher education libraries were evaluated. The project team reported regularly to the wider library team throughout the year long investigation and made recommendations. The project served to develop the professional skills of the project team, to expand the knowledge of the wider library team and encouraged new ways of thinking about guide provision to users.
