Assigning a type to a guide facilitates discovery; there are several pre-defined types of guides which are assigned under "Guide Type." In accordance with the LGMT Policy, General Purpose, Internal, and Topic guides are created in consultation with LGMT. Subject or Course guides for curricular support may be created independently but are subject to review by LGMT.
Research guides designed to provide instruction and guidance on a specific academic subject, e.g. History, Political Sciences
Guides designed to support the teaching and research needs of a specific course, e.g. _EDLR3250: Experiential Learning and Education
Guides that pull together information on a central topic, tool, or research area that is not generally considered to be an academic department or program, e.g. Black Lives Matter.
Guides that provide general information on a collection or service at the library, e.g. Research QuickStart
Please consult with LGMT before creating General Purpose guides
Guides made to be shared and used by library staff, e.g. UConn Library's LibGuides Standards and Best Practices
Please consult with LGMT before creating Internal guides
