Are you looking for an easy way to keep your library patrons, students, teachers and parents up-to-date on all things happening in the library? Blogs and discussion boards can help!
Blogs are built in to LibGuides, so it's possible to have a blog for your library as a whole, or separate blogs for different departments or subject areas.
Discussion boards provide a question and feedback functionality within your LibGuides CMS site. We'll look at how discussion boards can make it possible to have internal discussions among staff, or public discussions with patrons.
