How many research guides go neglected because we can’t keep up with all the stellar content we create for our patrons? As digital content producers, librarians are always looking for new ways to repurpose content for different audiences while streamlining content management. Fortunately, with the ongoing development of content management tools like Springshare LibGuides 2.0, the dream approaches reality. Presenters offer simple strategies (including naming, description, and chunking) for content creation and management that maximize opportunities for repurposing content across delivery platforms while keeping maintenance to a minimum. While this session focuses on LibGuides and LibAnswers, the content creation techniques discussed are applicable to any content management system that supports dynamic content mapping and/or external widget creation.
