Creating Customizable Subject Guides at Your Library to Support Online, Distance and Traditional Education: Comparing Three Self-Developed and One Commercial Online Subject Guide
Robinson, Julie; Kim, Don
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v4 n4 p185-196 2010
This article compares three self-developed subject guides and one commercial online subject guide (LibGuides) to provide information to other institutions which have a plan or are in the process of developing a plan to implement similar services to support online, distance and traditional education. This is a comparison of the current subject guides in use by three separate academic institutions: Murray State University, North Carolina State University, and The Ohio State University. This paper examines the creation and use of dynamic subject guides as a result of collaboration among departments: reference, systems, and campus information technology, through an examination of related articles. (Contains 3 tables.)
