The Power of LibGuides: Using theInterface and Creating ContentMichael Johnson, MLSCirculation Librarian, Shawnee State UniversityApril, 23rd 2012
What we will cover in thenext hour Quick review of the last class The main page options Creating a new research guide Creating pages and ordering them Creating content boxes and content The limitations of a WYSIWYG Gathering statistics from libguides
Review LibGuides is a content management system Easy to share or aggregate information Can set up permissions Choices to made before you start Color, language, formatting etc… Best practices aka Think of the User Use the system to save time Users want less not more Run a user analysis
Creating a new researchguide: Before Clicking Start on paper Pencil and paper are easy to erase and move around This saves time Making a blueprint Not for every bit of content Big parts How many tabs Major boxes Like a blue print this will change
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
