You have to be a pretty tenacious researcher to find any criticism about LibGuides, the practical and convenient tool that librarians use to create online guides to research. My search...

A fascinating look at the way in which LibGuides (which can be seen as knowledge management tools - pointing and guiding the way) may also stifle and restrict research. What types of knowledge are being generated?

"Is there an effective way to change behaviour in large and established organizations? Can changing the value proposition to focus on motivators and community building work to shift the behaviour while sidestepping the monumental task of changing the culture in this or other large and established organizations?
