First off, what is a LibGuide? LibGuides are electronic research guides that will make you a more effective and efficient researcher. They are a “pathfinder” that will guide you to the best places to begin your research. Charlotte Law Library has published ten LibGuides so far and we are always working on new ones. Many of you have used the LibGuide for Electronic Resources as it has had over 13,000 views this year alone! LibGuides are not just helpful for classwork – our dedicated librarians have also created LibGuides to guide our students through Academic Success and Professional Development, but you will hear more about those in upcoming weeks!
The reach of LibGuides extends far beyond our Charlotte Law Library community because it encompasses over 170,000 guides created by over 33,000 librarians at over 2000 libraries worldwide! The LibGuides Community is searchable and you will find almost ninety law libraries represented by hundreds of LibGuides.
LibGuides are more accessible than ever thanks to Facebook. The next time you login to Facebook, type “LibGuide” in the search box and you will be directed to where you can add the LibGuide app, giving you access through Facebook to all those helpful pathfinders located here at Charlotte Law Library and all across the country. Try it today!
