Hello! if you are on this guide you are interested in alternative uses for LibGuides (LG). We are by no means original in our realization that LG is a very forgiving and maleable web platform. In fact, Springshare itself has taken to advertising these other uses as well. But, for us, it didn't take long before we realized that we could use LG for much more that just "libguides" or "research guides."
Many of us at HCC Libraries have employed this "kitchen sink" approach. Not everything has worked out, of course, but much has and after all there is no harm in trying. If you already pay for the LG platform you know that it is an afforbdable, user-friendly, and robust web publishing tool for creating research guides for your students. This guide will show some of the other uses HCC Libraies have found for the popular content management system.
