  • 4. From Buffy Hamilton, The Unquiet Librarian---
    Ultimately, my investment in LibGuides is an investment in my library program. I feel that the integration of LibGuides into my library program since February 2009 has played a major role in improving the quality of my library instruction and service. I am empowered to integrate a diverse range of information sources and instructional support materials in an organized manner that works for my students and makes it easy for them to navigate the broad range of resources I can provide for a collaboratively designed research project.
