Your LibGuides Profile
Your LibGuides Profile is your contact info within the LibGuides system. It shows up not only to the end users, but also within the back end of the system to anyone looking at guides you've authored. All profiles will be required to have certain information, but you can also add additional ways for users to contact you (eg, a Yahoo IM account). One thing to keep in mind while creating your profile: LibGuides is basically an extension of the Library's website, so if it isn't something you want up on the Internet, easily accessible from any Google search, then it's best not to include it in your profile information.
