According to Springshare (n. d.), library guides are widely used by academic, school, and public libraries (130,000 librarians worldwide). Additionally, library guides integrate into a variety of LMS Systems including Canvas (Daniel, 2016). Per Lauseng et al. (2021), students, faculty, and librarians outside the guide's institution discover library guides in a variety of ways including Google searching. Noting these three points (1) popularity of the product (2) integration into an LMS (3) and worldwide viewership, library guides benefit by undergoing a rigorous peer review process to ensure high quality content and delivery.
