LibGuides does have a mobile interface - it's included in your LibGuides subscription. Folks are automatically redirected to the mobile version of your guides if they're using a mobile device. Here's what it looks like:

As I mentioned above, the mobile version is already enabled - but if you'd like to prevent folks from being redirected to the mobile version, just head to Admin Stuff > Mobile Settings. Scroll down to the section labeled Redirect Options and select "Disabled":

  1. Fantastic that LibGuides automatically create mobile-ready versions. However, I notice that when images are involved, the display isn't so great. It doesn't automatically shrink the images to fit but instead ends up cutting off content.

    Is there a way to make the mobile version either eliminate the image or shrink it so that all of the content fits in a box?

    Thanks.

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.
