Meeting Researchers Where They Are: Website Navigation

presented at the Charleston Conference, November 7, 2014

Published vs. Private LibGuides

Information about the published guides automatically populates the LibGuides system menus.

All of the descriptive words appearing on published guides can be used to locate information on the published guides.

Private guides are viewable by anyone, but they have to be located through a link that is directly provided to a user, such as during a class session, or a link that is listed on a published guide.

Using private guides for certain types of information reduces the visual clutter for users since the links to them are only displayed at the point of need. For example, a private guide might provide additional searching examples or archive an event that has already happened.

This "Meeting Researchers Where They Are" session LibGuide is a private guide. A link to it appears on the Charleston Conference guide.
