Libguide guide

Publishing your new guide

Once you've finished adding content to your guide, the last step is to publish it. Each new guide you create begins with a status of Unpublished, meaning that the public cannot view or search for it. In order to share your guide, you need to change its publication status to Published or Private.

  • Published: your guide will be visible to the public and included on your LibGuides homepage and in search results.
  • Private: your guide will only be visible to users who know its URL. It will otherwise not be included on your homepage or in search results.
