Daniel A. Cannon Memorial Library: LibGuides Best Practices

Work on for our Instiution


This LibGuide was created specifically for librarians and faculty at Saint Leo University. This guide is a short list of standards, best practices, and recommendations to follow when creating and updating your LibGuides.

We hope this LibGuide can help provide some consistency to the entire SLU LibGuides system. We also hope the reusable content found on this Guide will make it easier and faster to create LibGuide content and instructional activities.


There is also a print handbook available for LibGuides V2 attendees. Signup today to get one!
