Information management tools are becoming increasingly popular in educational and professional settings. This presentation addresses the pedagogical considerations taken into account when designing a dynamic collection of learning resources for a university-level English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program. Organized in several course-anchored guides hosted on a LibGuide platform, this collection serves as a repository and reference for online and library resources for courses in the Program. Specifically, this presentation focuses on four areas concerning the design and application of the LibGuides: (1) principles which inform the development of the collection discussed in the context of the Program curriculum; (2) pedagogical considerations that foster academic language proficiency, critical thinking, and information literacy; (3) the use of the platform in conjunction with the University LMS; and (4) technical features such as functionality, accessibility, and usability.
