LibGuides at New Trier High School

What are LibGuides? LibGuides are a library knowledge sharing system. Libraries use it to create attractive multimedia content, share knowledge and information, and promote library resources to the community, usually in the form of pathfinders on specific subject areas. They are being created by university and public school librarians. Librarians have access to the "community" of information on each school's portal.

One LibGuides community member – Buffy Hamilton aka the Unquiet Librarian, media specialist/teacher-librarian at Creekview High School in Canton, Georgia is an proponent of LibGuides within the K-12 space. On her blog last month she posted the top ten reasons she likes LibGuides: Unquiet Librarian blog on April 16th, 2010 .

Librarians at New Trier High School have started using LibGuides to create pathfinders for
class projects. See an example below.
