  8. 8. Creating a new researchguide: Lets take a tour Add a page  Adding a tap Reorder/move pages Reorder boxes Resize columns Delete a page  This can’t be undone
  9. 9. Creating a new researchguide: WARNING Don’t create subpages under the tabs  Hard to use on Mobile  The drop down menus that appear under the tabs are confusing  Users don’t like them Instead create a new guide with the headers being the drop down menu  Link back with a related guides box at the bottom
  10. 10. Creating a new site: Letsmove some stuff around Lets take a look at the practice cyber bulling guide I made: http://sandbox.campusguides.com/cyber- bullying We will go over content types in a bit
  11. 11. What’s in a box: Types ofcontent Rich Text/Dynamic Content/Scripts  This is the most versatile box  Allows for HTML and embedding Link Boxes  This is you want to make a list of links  I like Links & Lists Multimedia Boxes  Use it only for RSS Feeds and Books from Catalog  Everything else can be done in Rich Text better
  12. 12. What’s in a box: Types ofcontent pt. 2 User Input Boxes  Don’t use them Miscellaneous Boxes  Dates and events is useful Google Boxes  Aren’t we trying to show other sources then Google? Play Around  Explore and learn the options
  13. 13. The power of lists Lists are very useful  Databases  Similar resources  Providing out going links Descriptive Text  At the top there is room to write Users like lists  Short and related material Non-Link list  Use Rich Text
  14. 14. Lets make a link list together
  15. 15. Rich text box: WYSIWYG Stands for “What you see is what you get” Allows for a graphical system to interact with XHTML and CSS  Like Microsoft word for a website Pros  Interacting in a way that your used to  Short learning time, almost “natural” Cons  Not versatile  Can fight you
  16. 16. Rich text box introduction
  17. 17. Getting statistics We live in a quantitative world LibGuide Statistics can be another statistic that can show library usage First are statistics for all the guides Then statistics for an individual page
