Images & Backups Module

Add-On Module

The Images & Backups Module provides you with 3 extra pieces of functionality in the system.

Two of the pieces are available to all users, 1 is available to admin-level users only.

  1. Image Manager
    The Image Manager allows you to upload images directly to your guides. It makes adding and reusing images a snap!

    Accepted file types:jpg, jpeg, gif, png, ico
  2. Individual Guide Backup
    Create local HTML backups of your guides. A great way to archive versions when you're making major updates to a guide.

    It'll also save you time and heartache if you accidentally delete something and then regret it. You have the content in that back up and can easily recreate it! :)

    While editing the guide, go to Guide Settings > Create Backup.
  3. XML Export (Admin-level Users Only)
    The XML Export provides you with all of your system data in XML format. Once you have it, what you do with it is only bound by your imagination.

    A couple of ideas are feeding it into your institution's search appliance, or creating data mash ups.

    Simply click the link to request an export - you'll be notified when it's available. Come back to this page and click the link to download the file. That's it!

    Need to grab an XML Export fairly frequently?  Let us know, and we can set up automated retrieval for you!

Surveys & Forms

Surveys / Forms

The Survey & Form Tool is only available in LibGuides CMS.

The Survey/Form tool allows you to create any surveys and forms you need! From gathering feedback about your website or instruction sessions to creating ILL forms, this tool has you covered. Integrate them into your guides or any other webpages, or add survey/form links in emails.

Fully customizable via CSS, you can add as many questions as you like, get email notifications for any submitted survey (no matter where it was submitted), view all responses online or export them to Excel, and more… The best part? It's included in LibGuides CMS subscriptions – no extra cost!




The E-Reserves Module allows you to securely integrate reserve materials directly into your LibGuides / LibGuides CMS system, and allows your students to access reserve materials right alongside your course and research guides.

Upload documents / link to articles, group materials by course, organize course materials in folders, set visibility dates, set passwords for courses or items, and more!
