How long have you been making LibGuides?

How long have you been a librarian?

I received my M.S., 2010, from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Where do you look to find LibGuide inspiration?

The LibGuides Community and various university library sites – and lots and lots of Smashing Magazine articles regarding web design, usability, and best practice info.

What are some tips you would like to share with others who might be copying your guide?

Feel free to customize – we’d be happy to share our CSS too
