Locating sustainability information using ISTC’s LibGuides

LibGuides is a web 2.0 platform that librarians use to create topical guides to help their users find information. It combines the best features of social networks, wikis, and blogs into one package. Librarians can incorporate RSS feeds, video, web links, bibliographic citations, search boxes, and other finding aids.

 

LibGuides also allow librarians to create polls and allows users to comment on specific resources and tools within each guide. Users can also sign up to receive e-mail alerts when new content is published, either for particular topics/keywords or for a specific librarian. The guides created by ISTC’s Sustainability Information Curator are available here.

 

Some guides of particular interest include:
