What is a LibGuide? Print Page

How is LibGuides pronounced?

Is the "Lib" pronounced as in "liberation" or as in "library"?

Many people ask us this and - believe it or not - there were even bets being placed among some librarians (though we were assured that no money changed hands ;) Our official pronunciation is "Lib" as in liberation. -from the SpringShare Website


    What is a LibGuide?

    • LibGuides is a web 2.0 content management and publishing system created by SpringShare.
