Basic LibGuides Information

This guide provides basic information on how to create, manage, and use LibGuides.


Use this guide to play with creating and using LibGuides (version 2!). You can use this guide to learn how to manage your account, profile, and guides. Please give me feedback if there is something you think is missing, something you don't like, or something you really do like.

  • One of the main changes you'll notice in LibGuides 2 is that the way we log in is different. Read the box below to learn how to log in and manage your account.
  • Then, learn to update your profile. Go to the Profile tab (above) to learn how to manage your profile.
  • Already have your profile? Check out the other tabs on this guide to learn how to create LibGuides content.
