Das Blog mit dem langen Titel Friends:Social Networking Sites for Engaged Library Services macht in einem Posting mit einem ebenso langen Titel auf “LibGuides: The Web 2.0 Library Knowledge Sharing System (in Facebook)” aufmerksam:

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.

Es ist auch ein Demo-System verfügbar.
