LibGuides have become a hot word in the LIS field with more and more libraries exploring the versatility of this fairly inexpensive product. At Daytona State College, we’re working on creating aesthetically pleasing, informative, and interactive guides by using the tools provided by SpringShare, as well as additional free/cheap web based technologies. Examples of some of these tools include: BeeTagg, Gimp, Google Apps, Jing, Poll Everywhere, Pinterest, Popplet, Prezi, SlideShare, Survey Monkey, QR codes, and YouTube. Cheryl Kohen, Emerging Technology Librarian at Daytona State College will briefly demo all of these tools and discuss how they can be effectively utilized in LibGuides.
