Summer is nearly here, and with it is the LibGuides migration. Remember, LibGuides is designed to be user friendly. If you didn’t create guides in the CMS because it seemed too complicated, you might want to consider LibGuides training! The LibGuides Expert Team will be providing online training materials to make this process easy. In-person training workshops with a lot of time for guide creators to work on their content will be held on June 24 and July 7 from 10:00 a.m. – noon and 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., at University Park (Knowledge Commons 140). Training at the western and eastern campuses will be announced shortly!
Here is a reminder of the timeline for the migration:
- Currently: The LibGuides Expert Team is doing the pilot migration of Library Learning Services Guides and Life Sciences, as well as creating training materials. Guide authors should be reviewing their guide content and prioritizing guides for migration this summer.
- Early June: Training materials will be posted for Libraries’ employees to complete. Once training is completed, we will send out the link to all faculty and current CMS authors. LibGuides access can be requested using the account request system. This process will need to be followed by anyone who wants to create guides. With the release of the training materials, the migration will begin.
- July 15: LibGuides Expert Team will check in with Guide owners on migration status.
August 15: Guides that will be used for fall semester should be migrated. The LibGuides Expert Team will review new guides for accessibility and other content standards.
