Usability tests at MIT indicate that students are confused by excessive content. Keep text, lists, pages and boxes to a minimum.
Before creating a new guide, check that your new guide does not duplicate content in an already published guide. Collaborate with your fellow librarians to create one guide on a specific subject or course that can be used by different librarians for teaching and that is useful for all users at UConn.
Use short and descriptive names for pages and content boxes (refer to Guide Types and Naming Standards for naming Guides)
Organize Lists of Resources
Minimize Print Resource Lists
