Welcome to LibGuides!

What is a guide?

Each guide can contain 1 or more pages, so you can think of a guide as a mini-website. Create guides on any topic, for any purpose.

There are no limits to the number of guides you can have in the system, so don't be shy - create!

What is the structure of a guide?

Guides consist of pages (tabs), subpages (dropdown list from a tab), and boxes of content (text, links, rss feeds, videos, polls, widgets, etc.).

Hierarchy:     Guide > Pages/Sub-pages > Content Boxes > Info you add to the content box
