Different librarians use LibGuides in different ways
LibGuides are similar to a pathfinder. They help organize information and resources needed for an assignment, presentation, and anything else that you want to share.
LibGuides are used by over 4000 libraries in 40 countries.
For an individual school library LibGuides charges an annual subscription fee of $649/year (includes Custom Domain). School districts are charged based on the number of students.

When you subscribe to LibGuides you are joining the LibGuide community. This means you can borrow from other LibGuide users, and other LibGuide users can borrow from you.
SpringShare (creators of LibGuides) provides many kinds of support: an online newsletter, support blog, video tutorials, online FAQ's, and the LibGuide community.
