LibGuides For Faculty: Web 2.0 Features 

LibGuides and Web 2.0

Usng LibGuides allows libraries to distribute their content to other websites, blogs, and courseware systems.

With LibGuides widgets you can embed library content into any blog, website, social network, or a courseware system. The widgets are flash components that can be placed inside any web page. Patrons can also search your library catalog directly from any LibGuides widget.

LibGuides three Facebook applications and integration with Twitter enables you to promote your library resources and services.  Facebook users simply need to select LibGuides from the list of applications in Facebook applications directory. LibGuides will recognize the user's school affiliation and present them with their "home" LibGuides system.
