What are InfoGuides?

InfoGuides are attractive web pages for your course, program, or student organization. They are quick and easy to create with LibGuides software. By providing students with downloadable documents and links to useful information, InfoGuides can eliminate much of the need for paper handouts and copyright permission.

 The information contained in your InfoGuide can include, but not be limited to 

instructional text assignments handouts
reminders links to websites & other docs     database search boxes
video clips podcasts RSS feeds
user surveys & comments     instant messaging contact information

 InfoGuides can consist of one or more pages. They can be posted on the library website, linked to from within Angel, and posted on other webpages. Alternatively, you can opt to keep them private, with access only via a web address. You will have some control in determining their web address.
