A guide for LibGuides authors

Hardin Library Guide Standards

In addition to the Libraries-wide guidelines on the first tab, Hardin Library guides are expected to follow the below guidelines and standards.  Please contact Kelly with any questions.

  • Link to the box "Hardin Library Resources" from the "LibGuides at University of Iowa Libraries" libguide and place it in the upper-left corner of the first page of your guide.  You can also copy the box and makes changes to the resources listed, but be aware that you will then be responsible for checking and updating the links.
  • Place either the "Hardin Library Resources" box or "Hardin Library" box (which is just the logo) at the top-left of all other pages.
  • Place the "Are we missing something" box at the lower-left corner of each guide page.  This is a standard box available from the new box menu.
  • Link to the "Get More Help" box from the "LibGuides at University of Iowa Libraries" libguide and place it in the lower-right corner beneath your author profile.
