An Exciting Content Partnership with HowStuffWorks.com

The Springshare Team would like to announce that HowStuffWorks.com, the Web site famous for its easy-to-understand explanations of how the world actually works, will be working with the LibGuides product as our first content partner.  HowStuffWorks will create free multimedia “Hot Topic” Guides for library users of all ages.  The HowStuffWorks portfolio of Guides is already available at http://hsw.libguides.com for:

HowStuffWorks is developing even more guides slated to be available in Fall 2008 including:

  • World History
  • Government & Politics
  • Weather &  Natural Disasters
  • Home Improvement / DIY
  • Gardening
  • Recipes
  • Cooking 101
  • Auto Repair
  • Space & Solar System
  • Classic Cars
  • Adventure
  • Travel
  • Small Business
  • Health & Fitness

The guides have been created by Kristiana Burk, a former librarian and teacher who holds an ALA-accredited MLS from the University of Kentucky. She is currently Channel Director at HowStuffWorks and welcomes any ideas or requests for more information at kburk@howstuffworks.com.  Librarians and subscribers to LibGuides are encouraged to copy HowStuffWorks guides in their entirety, enhance the template guides with their own programming and resources or pull certain articles and video links from them to create their own customized guide on a given topic.  Enjoy!
