The following are some tips that will help you and users get the most out of Subject Guides:
Assets are the smallest unit of content in LibGuides 2.0. Multiple types of assets can live in the same box. You can reorder, edit, and delete your assets. For more information on assets, see the Asset Types tab.
In the new system, there are only fours types of boxes. You will be using the standard box for most of your content, and unlike in the old system, different types of content (assets) can be in one box.
You can reorder your boxes, edit, or delete them.
1. Links for catalog records and catalog searches are persistent (i.e. you can copy and paste from the address bar).
2. Links for Articles+ searches are persistent, BUT you have to add the UNC proxy prefix in front of what you copy from the address bar:
3. Use the database asset to link to database records. If you are mentioning a database in a rich text box, rather than using it as an asset, link to the friendly URL found here: http://unc.beta.libguides.com/az.php (click on the link symbol next to the database name).
It’s usually best for a full-time librarian to create the actual guide, and then make the graduate student assistant an editor. (That way only the librarian’s profile box appears on the guide.) You can add students or other librarians as editors by clicking on the gear symbol at the top right and selecting Guide Editors.
If you have already created the guide and need to transfer ownership to someone else, please contact the LibGuides team.
