How to Delegate a LibGuide

Provide a working model for the librarian that “Volunteers” to build your LibGuide.

What it is…

A LibGuide is a research-oriented service offered by many library systems.

If your school library subscribes to the LibGuide Service, a librarian will research sources and create a guide for your course.

Why do it…

Content area subjects require students to write reports and create and deliver presentations. But, course requirements and schedules mean that content area teachers do not enjoy the luxury of teaching students the basics of research, reference citing and presentation development.

LibGuides provide background information resources so that students can find self-help for their assignments.

What it accomplishes…

  • Saves Students’ Time
  • Decreases Trivial Bibliographic Entries
  • Organizes Students’ Work
  • Connects with Pre-built Search Portals

When not to Use it…

Always use LibGuides if a librarian will create these resources for your courses.


How to do it…

Submit a LibGuide request to your school library.

Provide as much detail as possible, including checklists and grading rubrics, so that the librarian knows what to include in your LibGuide.
