LibGuides, simply put, are webpages. However, LibGuides are distinct from our public-facing Library, Museums and Press websites. Those webpages contain general information, departmental messaging and policy-related material. LibGuides, in comparison, are more detailed pages devoted to specific topics or course-related materials.
After some initial training and practice, the LibGuides platform becomes an easy way to assemble topical, subject-related or course-connected sites for your instructional needs. As with any webpage, there are user-experience conventions and accessibility standards to implement (seen below in the Tools section). However, as is also the case with web design, LibGuides is a very flexible platform to encompass a wide variety of information and media.
