Linda Swarlis’s session, “LibGuides & Only 2 Clicks”

Description: As the resources available to our students become more varied, how is it possible to create pathfinders or subject guides that combine multiple formats? LibGuides is a solution that many colleges and K-12 schools have chosen. Not only can resources be combined, but it is possible to check quickly for broken links and to keep accurate statistics. A second resource,Only2clicks, is free and allows you to store links arranged by subjects or topics and share them with your students.

After the session, I hope attendees will learn to: one of the following three things:

1. Create an Only2clicks page of resources for students in their school OR

2. Explore resources contained in other school library LibGuides and add those resources to their own content management system OR

3. Create their own LibGuides account.
