Welcome to Springshare!
Springshare tools enable you to publish useful information, share knowledge, and discover new resources. You can create online communities and social networks centered around the resources at your library, school, or academic department … .

LibGuides
LibGuides is a Web 2.0 library knowledge sharing system. Think of it as social networks meets wikis meets bookmarks meets blogs … LibGuides helps librarians share knowledge and information, while highlighting and promoting the library resources and services to the community.

LibGuides is a system for publishing information and creating social networks centered around the library resources. Librarians create Guides (we use the word loosely - it can be any content, on any topic, for any purpose) and then publish them online. The Guides contain documents, links, podcasts, RSS feeds, videos, etc. Users can participate in interactive polls and rate the links and resources.

The system supports tagging of content. The homepage displays the tag cloud listing the most popular tags, and the most recent content published. LibGuides delivers relevant information to patrons, while encouraging them to browse the library resources via tags and subject keywords … .

LibGuides is also available from Facebook, enabling your users to access the library content, chat with reference librarians, and even search the catalog, all from their Facebook homepage.

The system is fully customizable, enabling you to offer a cutting-edge Web 2.0 tool with your library brand on it.

Facebook Integration

Facebook is one of the fastest growing websites, with the projected user base of 50M by the end of 2007. Most college students already use Facebook, but increasingly the alumni and the high school students are also signing on. Many customers of academic and public libraries are using Facebook on a regular basis.

It is important for libraries "to go where the customer is" and offer their online services and content outside of the library website. In addition to providing a convenient way for your users to access the library content and services from Facebook, this serves as an excellent marketing tool for libraries. Making the content and services available in Facebook greatly improves the visibility of your library services.

LibGuides is the first library application available within Facebook. The user simply needs to select LibGuides from the list of applications in Facebook. LibGuides will recognize the user's school affiliation and the system will be available to this user directly from their Facebook homepage … .
