LibGuides and fiction books at UTAS

Today I spent some time investigating LibGuides. While looking at some sites from other universities I came across a LibGuide produced by Drury University in Missouri.

Its purpose is to publicise the Library's quest to encourage students and faculty to read.

The Read campaign asks students and staff to identify their favourite book and talk about how it changed their life.

We could do something similar and tie it in to our existing fiction collection.

That's a good idea Katrina, it would help to build networks between academics, students and the library, and encourage reading too.
The LibGuides software is so versatile, you don't have to use it to make subject guides alone. It has the potential to be used for all kinds of things.

LibGuides might also be a good option for showcasing our new books online.
