The subject guide has been a valuable tool for school and academic librarians for decades, first as a print resource and more recently as web pages and web-based documents. In this workshop, Hamilton will show participants how to revitalize the subject guide as a dynamic, customizable, social resource by integrating it into the web.
Buffy Hamilton is a librarian at Creekview High School in Canton, Georgia, where she introduced Media 21, a participatory, transliterate learning environment for research projects. She received the 2011 Cutting—Edge Service Award from the ALA’s Office for Information and Technology Policy.
