Target Audience: Librarians who want to implement or improve web-based presentation of research guides
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to assess the benefits and drawbacks of various commercial and open-source research guide platforms, and identify the best solution for their library.
2. Participants will be able to create a strategy for efficiently creating and updating content on web-based research guides.

Research guides are a favorite tool of law librarians for sharing information with patrons, but the task of creating, updating and distributing them is time-consuming. There are now a number of software solutions that aim to streamline this process and enable librarians to create user-friendly, multi-media research guides. This program will compare the commercial and open-source applications available, including the popular LibGuides product, and provide participants with tools necessary to make an informed decision for their library. Panelists will also showcase strategies for implementing these systems, and explore best practices for creating and managing research guide content.
