We recommend that you request a beta site for LibGuides v2.

(Beta meaning you're working on your new site, not that the code is in beta. ;) )

We've rebuilt LibGuides from the ground up, and the new version has new & exciting for you to customize your guides. Here's a taste:

  • Easy color customizations (including new CSS-based tabs)
  • Tabbed navigation and side navigation options available
  • Customizable HTML templates for all pages
  • Easy database management, including a new public page automatically populated by your Database Assets

Are you a developer? Then these features might interest you as well...

  • You can upload your own CSS and JavaScript files
  • Our templates are built on Mustache
  • LibGuides 2 is based on Bootstrap
  • We use Font Awesome
  • LibGuides CMS customers have access to a RESTful, real-time API

Overall, we think you'll save time and have more fun customizing LibGuides v2.

Check out our guide for more information about LibGuides v2, including how to request your beta site!
