LibGuides is a platform that simplifies the creation of web pages to showcase content and highlight research tips. This library website is built on the LibGuides platform. I am happy to create a LibGuide for any assignment or unit that can benefit from a display of high quality resources of all kinds: websites, databases, or library content. For most students, this scaffolding proves beneficial.
The authors of the book pictured above choose a SAAS student project, Renewable Resources, as an exemplary example of LibGuides pedagogical design. Students used LibGuides to curate websites on renewable resources, as shown in this example guide:
