Best Practices for Creating Research Guides at NVU Libraries

This guide offers tips and a template for creating libguides for NVU Libraries, with the specific intent to make all libguides accessible to every student.

Profile Box

The profile box should only be on the Home page of your guide located below the side-navigation menu in the left column.

Display only one profile box per guide.  Research shows that users get confused about who to contact if multiple people are listed.

The profile box should read Ask a Librarian, Guide Author, or subject specialty: Art Librarian.

The profile box should include the following:

  • photo
  • email address
  • phone number
  • library or office address
