University Libraries Section (ULS): Using LibGuides

The purpose of LibGuides

ACRL provides the LibGuides platform as one of our communication tools. Thanks, ACRL! 

ULS uses LibGuides to share information about our work. We have three public-facing LibGuides, originally created in 2017:

The primary audience for these guides are:

  • Committee and discussion group chairs and conveners
  • Prospective and current ULS members who are interested in learning more about committees and discussion groups

Who does what

The Procedures Committee is responsible for:

  • Oversight of LibGuides and point of contact for any questions about our LibGuides
  • Giving people accounts and editing access
  • Providing support or training on how to use LibGuides
  • Reminding committee chairs and discussion group conveners to review and update their pages:
    • July/August, at the beginning of terms
    • December/January (before volunteer sign-up cycle ending Feb.15)
    • May/June (before Annual), at the end of terms
  • Liaising with Megan Griffin about anything related to LibGuides

The Communications Committee is responsible for:

Committee chairs and discussion group conveners are responsible for:

  • Ensuring their content is up to date (for example, the chair of the Membership Committee revises the Membership Committee page)
  • Adhering to the guidelines outlined on this meta-guide

Executive Committee members are responsible for:

  • Ensuring their content on the Executive Committee guide is up to date (for example, the Secretary revises the Secretary page)
  • Adhering to the guidelines outlined on this meta-guide
  • Approving the creation and deletion of any ULS LibGuides
