LibGuides can serve a variety of functions for both you and the end user. They make an excellent home for subject pages, pathfinders, individual assignment pages (think Stokesberry!), and more. You have a variety of choices for the types of information you can put in your LibGuide — from text to links to images to video to RSS feeds and more. But all the information you put in your LibGuide MUST be from an authoritative source. A good rule of thumb: if a source wouldn't pass muster for addition to our collection, then it probably doesn't need to show up in your LibGuide. If you ever have questions about what's appropriate, the best way to structure your guide, technical issues, or need help of any kind, feel free to contact me (Bethany) or Jodi.
