Through LibGuides, students can connect to online research materials, interact with a librarian via IM chat, access tutorials, and provide feedback. LibGuides is a popular information literacy tool for academic, public, special, and school librarians!" Please register by Monday, August 16 2010: http://bit.ly/bKbMdt
