New DML Research Guides

December 11, 2009

Dahlgren Memorial Library has a new interface for its research guides: We are gradually migrating the old research guides to this new format and also adding additional topics.

These new research guides will incorporate new technologies such as RSS feeds, podcasts, video, etc. The guides will allow users to rate resources, comment on links, and send suggestions for potential links to include in the guide. There will also be contact information on every page to provide our users with quick access to a librarian.

These guide are also integrated with the Library’s liaison program in order to help support the community of Georgetown University Medical Center and Georgetown University Hospital.

Here’s a quick presentation of the features:
