This LibGuide was created specifically for Butler librarians. It lists standards, best practices, and recommendations to follow when creating and updating LibGuides.
We hope this LibGuide can help provide some consistency to the entire Butler LibGuides system. We also hope its linked reusable content can help make it easier and faster to create LibGuide content and instructional activities.
Looking for an example of these best practices? Below you'll find an example LibGuide and outstanding highlights from other LibGuides.
Franny's Chinese LibGuide
This guide shows how a top box image can really make your guides pop. It also utilizes tabbed boxes to list both print and online resources in a very clean, concise way. Notice that she puts text at the top of the boxes to highlight the LC range too!
Franny's Classical Studies LibGuide
Great use of a top box image and a tabbed box for recommended resources. Also includes good image attribution and the creative commons license for the Guide.
Find Images & Media
Demonstrates good use of tabbed box and the license box.
