Description

Various options such as Flickr, blogs, wikis, LibGuides, Blackboard,YouTube, etc. are available to teach and publicize government information services. In this presentation, I will demonstrate how to teach and promote government information via LibGuides and Blackboard systems. It is easy to create user-friendly course and subject guides using these two systems. With the availability of web 2.0 technologies, we can integrate video clips, RSS Feeds, and images to make our guides interesting. Now is the time to "jazz it up" and reveal the hidden treasures to our user community.
