What is a LibGuide?

How subject and research guides are used by public libraries.

Customizable Look and Feel.


We have the ability to control the style of our guides by adding pages and by selecting different types of content, such as:

Rich Text - Enter any type of formatted text (including html), links, or dynamic javascript code. We can also embed custom scripts, iFrame, etc.

Lists of Databases - Create a list of databases that the library subscribes to for patrons to access directly from a guide while researching a topic or searching for authoritative resources.

Links and Lists - Create bullet lists of web links and non-web link items (regular lists).  Each item can have a short description which appears underneath the item, and an optional More Info button which the user can click to get more information. We can track the usage statistics (outgoing clicks) for the links.

Books from the Catalog - Describe any number of books and provide links to them from the Library Catalog.  Images of book covers can also be included.

Documents & File - Allows uploading of any number of files to your guide.  Individual files cannot be larger than 5MB each.  Each file can have a short description (255 characters).

Interactive Polls- Enables us to create a short poll on your page. Create a question up to 10 choices for your poll. Each poll has a url and you can view real-time results.

Embedded Media and Chat Widgets- The Embedded Media & Widgets box allows us to add video, audio, or any other widget on our guides.

Podcast, Program, & Blog Feeds- This option enables us to display the contents of an awesome feed on our guides.

So many exciting options!
