Integrating LibGuides Into Library Websites
Librarians at Old Dominion University (ODU) Libraries use the LibGuides platform in a creative way to meet immediate, practical needs. Traditionally, we have offered two types of information literacy tutorials. The first is a lengthy, module-based tutorial and is used in our information literacy-designated courses to cover skills in-depth and which students must complete over the course of a semester. The second is a short tutorial designed to give students an introduction or a refresher covering basic research skills, information literacy concepts, and library services.
Prior to migrating to a new web platform, ODU Libraries hosted short click-through tutorials on our local website. When ODU Libraries migrated to our new web platform we lost the ability to locally host tutorials. We turned to LibGuides and created a new and improved interactive guide to introduce our students to basic research skills and to reach out to students at their points of need.
