WordPress for Libraries

Faced with a limited budget and the desire to offer new resources and services, the librarians at the Stafford Campus developed an innovative approach to using WordPress in a library setting.  Their efforts led to the re-creation of the research guides being used by students at the Stafford Campus.  Using WordPress, the Stafford Librarians changed their research guides from a static collection of weblinks to a versatile research blog featuring instant messaging, Twitter, RSS, videos, and a federated database search engine.
