Implementing LibGuides 2: An Academic Case Study
Duncan, Vicky; Lucky, Shannon; McLean, Jaclyn
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v27 n4 p248-258 2015
Since 1997, the University of Saskatchewan Library has used "subject pages" to highlight key library resources. When Springshare announced it was launching LibGuides v2, a project team was assembled to transition a mixture of locally produced guides and guides created with the original LibGuides v1 software. This article synthesizes best practices for LibGuides found in the literature, outlines our best intentions in the migration process, and shares what actually transpired after considering factors such as technical challenges and institutional culture. We hope other academic libraries can learn from our experience and make decisions that suit their institution best.
