In this age of information saturation, where even the most casual researcher has immediate access to millions of potential sources, a well-made LibGuide remains a powerful tool of curated reference material. However, despite the amount of time librarians invest in developing and updating LibGuides and the large number of articles outlining best design practices for LibGuide creation, there has been a surprising dearth of research conducted on their use. In this presentation, you’ll see the results of the largest quantitative study ever conducted on user behavior on LibGuides, and learn what the aggregate trends and patterns in this data suggest can help you build better and more usable LibGuides.

Presented by Lindsay Cronk, LYRASIS Member Support Specialist
