An Introduction to LibGuides

The pages in this section offer tips and best practices for creating and designing the layout of your guides. If you're new to using LibGuides, be sure to watch the video below and visit Springshare's Building a Guide page, where you will find links to detailed instructions for creating guides and adding content.

When building your guide, consider research that reminds online content creators to be succinct and intentional about what to include. Online readers "are not likely to read your content completely or linearly. They just want to pick out the information that is most pertinent to their current needs.".
