What are Groups?

Groups are a way of organizing and managing your site content. Each group can have its own:

  • Homepage
  • Banner/HeaderFooter
  • Design/Color Scheme (Tabs, Box headers, etc.)
  • Access Controls (IP restrictions)

Group Ideas

  • Audience - Do you have guides that are geared towards specific audiences? Use Groups to organize that content by Audience type. For example, Online students/Faculty or Children/Young Adult audience.
  • Type of guide - For example, Course/Class Guides, Subject Guides, Research Guides, etc...
  • Branch/campus location.
  • Special Collections - Does your library specialize or collect something unique? Use Groups to draw attention to unique/special collections at your library.
  • Special events or library-created content such as newsletters? Use Groups to to organize your events and library-created content efficiently.
  • Disciplines/majors. For example, Nursing, Legal Studies or Culinary Arts.
