LIBGUIDES - GETTING STARTED: SAMPLE GUIDE - 3 COLUMNS

This guide will help all faculty and staff create high quality content for new LibGuides.

INTRODUCTION

Use this box to give an overview of what the guide. You can also use this to introduce the subject and what information the guide will contain. 

This page is as an example of a guide using 3 columns.  These column widths are distributed to take up 25%, 50%, and 25% of the screen. There is also the option of three equal column widths. The choice is yours! 

CONTENT 1

This area can be filled with text, images, and links. Please be thoughtful about your text and make it as clear and concise as possible. 

You can also share other Guides that are relevant to the subject or might be helpful to the user!

Some boxes can even have invisible borders! This sometimes looks best if you want to insert a photo.

Always be sure to cite the photos!

Make sure to send where you got the image from so we can make sure we don't violate copyright law!
