Using LibGuides

This guide provides information related to setting up your LibGuides account, creating and editing LibGuides, as well as the standards that are in place for how LibGuides should generally look and feel.

Responsibilities of Guide Owners and Editors

Guide owners and editors are expected to review their subject guides and course pages on a regular basis throughout the year.

An annual report will be generated to assist you in determining the usefulness of each subject guide and to help you determine whether or not to keep a guide.

Below you will find an outline of the maintenance timeline followed by Sarah.
