LibGuides Characteristics

About LibGuides

What are LibGuides?
  • Lib(rary) + Guides
  • It is a product from Springshare
  • A system that allows librarians to easily create and share information
How does it work?
  • It works in boxes, pages, and guides.
  • These hold information about your library.
  • Boxes can be recycled to other pages and guides.
  • Pages can be recycled to other guides.
How does it organize my information?
  • You create and assign your subjects.
  • You identify keywords so your students can search your LibGuides.
My school colors are (insert your colors) and the font is too small.
  • Go ahead and change your colors, you have full administrative access to your site.
  • Insert some *.css into your settings so that everything on your site is uniform.
But I don't have time to create something new for a class first thing tomorrow.
  • Check out the LibGuides Community, perhaps someone else has already created a LibGuide you can use.
