*Reusable LibGuides Boxes: Reusable LibGuide Boxes

How to Use this Guide

Welcome to Butler Libraries' Reusable LibGuide! 

 
What can be found in this guide?

This guide contains boxes that are designed to be mapped to your various LibGuides. Each tab contains multiple drop down pages with topic related information. 

 

How do I use a reusable box?

In order to add a box to your LibGuide, we suggest using the "mapping" function if you do not plan on making specific changes to the box. The mapping function keeps the box current and updated when a librarian needs to make a change to the box across all LibGuides. If you would like to make changes to the box, use the "draft" function. But note, by using the draft function, global updates will not be applied to a draft box.

 

Controlled Vocabulary

Use the "tags" feature to see which LibGuides are being updated. "Stable" denotes LibGuides that are being viewed and updated on a continual basis. Stable LibGuides are generally safe to map to or pull mapped boxes from.

About Reusable Boxes

Reuse, recycle triangle icon

Butler Librarians are encouraged to interact with this Guide in two ways:

  1. Reuse boxes from this Guide on your own Guides. 
  2. Contribute by adding boxes that you think will be helpful to others.

A note about reusing boxes: We encourage you to link boxes whenever possible, so that changes will only have to be made on this Guide. Of course, if you want to customize the content you are fine to make a copy.

Librarians are also encouraged to contact Amanda Starkel if they have ideas or suggestions for boxes.
