Public Services Librarian
University of Central Florida
How long have you been making LibGuides?
I have been creating LibGuides for 3 years, but this is the first year I’ve begun experimenting more with CSS & guide customization.
How long have you been a librarian?
I received my MLIS from Florida State University in 2010.
Where do you look to find LibGuide inspiration?
Best of LibGuides to start! I also enjoy just searching online for different terms combined with “LibGuides” and seeing what pops up. There is some amazing content and creativity out there.
What are some tips you would like to share with others who might be copying your guide?
Don’t be afraid to experiment! I changed everything from colors to border size before settling on a design. Coworkers and patrons are great resources for ideas or a good laugh when you've made a design blunder!
What is your favorite thing about LibGuides?
I love how easily all types of media can be added into LibGuides. With or without any prior web design experience, anyone can create a dynamic guide with videos, news, and social media feed!
