What's on this page?
This page includes one of each type of LibGuides content box suggested for use by UNC Libraries. The box types are:
- Links Boxes
- Multimedia Boxes
- User Input Boxes
- Miscellaneous Boxes
- System Content Boxes
Links and Lists
In this type of box, you can create lists of web links and non-web link items (unordered list). FYI: "Links and Lists" and "Simple Web Links" are essentially the same.

User Link Submission
In this box, a form allows users to submit links they feel would add value to the page.
Links are not visible until approved, and can be deleted by the Guide's administrator.
Dates & events
In this box, you can enter date(s), title, and URL (optional) to create list of upcoming events.

Books from the Catalog
A better name for this type of box would "Items from the Catalog" since you are not limited by type of material. In this box, you can create links to any item in our Endeca or Classic Catalog. Using the item's ISBN, you can link to a cover art image for that item as well.
Using a bit of code, you can embed an audio or video link into this type of box.
Here's the code I entered to embed the video below...
