Reusable Content?

Why Reuse?

  • There are some tools that you and content creators will want to use again and again
  • You want to make sure that everyone has quick access to this content
  • If you ever need to change this content, wouldn't it be nice to only have to update things in one place???

What types of content are reusable?

Oh man, the options are endless, but here are some of the most popular:

  • Library Catalog Searches
  • Database search widgets
  • Chat widget code
  • A "links to more help options" box
  • What are you reusing?

Now is a good time to think about what kinds of content in your site that are reusable!
