How do I remove a librarian's account without losing the guides they created?

A librarian in our library recently got a new job, but they are still in our LibGuides system and have a few guides associated with them. How do I remove them from the system without losing the guides?

In order to remove a user, they mustn't own any guides in your system.

When you delete this person's account, you will be prompted to reassign of all those user's guides.

Note: you must be an admin-level user to do this.

  1. Go to Admin Stuff > Accounts.

  2. On the Manage Accounts screen, click the red X in the Actions column for that user:

  3. If the user still has guides associated with their account, you will be prompted to select a new guide owner.

  4. Click Delete Account .
