What's new in LibGuides 2: Home

A brief guide

Top box

You can now have a box that spans all the columns - at the top or bottom. You have the same range of box types as usual.


Standard boxes cover almost all the box types from LibGuides 1. The main omission is 'Table of Contents Boxes', which now have to be created manually.

You can mix and match links, pictures, files etc. as much as you want.

Tabbed boxes can be very useful, and allow a lot of information to fit in a small space. You have access to the same range of content types as a Standard box.

The 'Media/Widget' content type is useful for any social media etc. that produces an embed code. E.g. YouTube videos.

Blogs and other social media often produce RSS feeds. This is a good way of getting dynamic content into your guide.
