Best Practices for Research and Course Guides


Maintaining your Guide


This guide is for archival purposes only.

Please see the new LibGuides Best Practices guide for updated content.

Suggestions for Maintaining Libguides

  • Make use of the LibGuides link checker feature twice a year to ensure that all your links are active.
  • Before the beginning of each semester, review all guides to see if there are any resources (databases, ebooks, etc), that can be added to the guide.
  • Each time a course is being offered, allow the instructor to review any relevant course guides so that he or she can suggest any updates.
  • Promptly remove links to resources that we no longer subscribe to.
  • If a database vendor changes, change the links on the Libguides to reflect these changes.
