How long have you been making LibGuides?

How long have you been a librarian?
Since August 2011. I received my MLIS in May of 2011.
Where do you look to find LibGuide inspiration?
I've been really inspired by the work my colleagues here do — they always have great ideas and provide really useful feedback. They're also always looking at different ways to use LibGuides — for example by embedding documents or attaching forms or feeds, and that really helps me as I'm working on my own Guides.
What are some tips you would like to share with others who might be copying your guide?
I really loved that I could embed a Google form and use the LibGuide as a portal for people who were signing up for the event it corresponds to. I thought that really opened up the Guide's possibilities.
What is your favorite thing about LibGuides?
I love how versatile they are. There are so many things they can do and ways they can connect people with information. I think that's really important.
