Answer

In LibGuides, there are a couple of ways to do this:

1. In a "Rich Text Box) (the most common box), type in whatever text you'd like to appear as the link, then highlight it. You'll see the "link" icon become live - you can then click on it, enter the full Link URL, and select whether you want the link to open in the same window or in a new window. In the example below, the word "Link" on the left will be what's visible to your visitors.

2. If you're using a "Links and Lists" or "Simple Web Links" box type, select "Add a new link". The "Link Title" is what will be visible to your site's visitors.

    This site is shutting down by, if not before, March 31, 2018.

    LibGuides v1 servers are also shutting down at that time.

    See LibGuides v2 documentation instead.
