LibGuides Best Practices

Trinity's guidelines for creating new guides and maintaining guides

Naming our Guides

We use three types of guides: 

General: default guide type and catch-all

Course: for guides that are course number specific

Subject: guides that are specific to a subject area


Course Guides: ANTH 1301: Intro to Anthropology 

Subject Guides: Art & Art History Subject Guide

General Guide: Benefits for University Employees

Guide Restrictions:

Internal Guides: for guides that are used within Trinity for other librarians. These guides will not appear on public lists or search results. Shared URLs will make this guide available to others.

Private Guides: setting a guide to private also will hide the guide from public and internal view.

Password protected: you have the option to make a guide and/or content password-protected.
