Select #LibGuides at The University of Iowa Libraries... from the dropdown list. (January 30, 2013: #LibGuides at The University of Iowa Libraries... was moved to the top of the list)
Select a box from the list.
Note: some boxes are designed to fit in a narrow column, some in the wider column.
To request a new box (either a brand-new one or a re-wording of an existing one) please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Some vendors provide their own search widgets. If you discover one that's not listed please contact email@example.com
Adding a new resource to your guide? If a link already exists in one of our existing LibGuides you can reuse it.
Why is this good? If a change is made to the title, URL, or description of the resource we only need to update it in once place.
For example, our Databases, A-Z page is generated from this LibGuide: http://guides.lib.uiowa.edu/databases. To reuse a link from this list you need to be using one of the Link Boxes box types (Simple Web Links or Links & Lists)

To embed a Qualtrics Survey on your LibGuide page paste the following code in the Plain-Text Editor tab of a Rich Text Box replacing the URL with your own survey URL. You may need to adjust the height and width.
<iframe src="https://uiowa.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_7ZCxs4x3BRiXYPO" width="100%" height="500" frameborder="0"> <p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p> </iframe>
You may need to change your survey's template to something simple such as "PlainJainSmall" to display it fully if you are using a 2- or 3-column LibGuides laytout. Go to Edit Survey/Look And Feel and select Qualtrics from the dropdown (instead of University of Iowa) and select from the options.
