Libguide guide

What is a guide?

guide is a webpage that you can use to add and share content. Each guide can be organized into pages, each page containing boxes of content items (such as text, links, images, databases, etc.). Patrons can find your published guides listed on your LibGuides homepage, but they can also search your LibGuides site for relevant guides.

If you subscribe to LibGuides CMS, guides can also be organized into groups. Each group has its own homepage and friendly URL, allowing users to visit that group's guides directly. In addition, each group can also have its own look & feel, which will be applied to the guides in that group.

The following diagram provides an overview of how content is organized in LibGuides. Read on to learn more about creating guides and adding content.
