LibAnswers for District-Wide Knowledge Base and Library Assistance
Collaborate & Communicate on a District Level
LibGuides is one of the most flexible platforms I use. Not only can it do almost anything, the interface is so intuitive that anyone can skillfully use it. I've taught many folks at my school how to use LibGuides for their course-pages, project descriptions, photo galleries, and more! Plus working with the folks at Springshare is always a pleasure!
Provide Help…Even When You’re Not There
It’s 9pm, And They Need Help
Students need help, even when you’re not open. Increase visibility, and usage, of library resources. Create searchable LibAnswers FAQs for students, teachers, parents, and district staff so they can get answers to their questions - 24/7 on their smartphone, tablet, or desktop. Embed FAQs right inside LibGuides, the library website, and even inside their courseware tool. They'll have easy access to your knowledge literally at their fingertips – right when they need it the most.
Reminders of What They Learned
Instruction sessions can be overwhelming. Students can easily forget the invaluable resources you showed them when they go home to do their work. Class-specific LibGuides store all the resources they need for that class or assignment in one place. So even if they forget what you showed them, they'll remember to look at the LibGuide.
