LibGuides (part 2)

At the outset, it is possible to overlook features of LibGuides CMS such as groups and their accompanying permissions. But groups can be useful, since they can describe organizational realities, so you may find that they’re helpful to you at some point in your LibGuides journey.

For us, LibGuides was a powerful tool to organize web work within the library, after it had long been managed elsewhere on campus. Bringing workflows back into the library accentuated the need for more fine-grained permissioning in our tools.

Likewise, managing JavaScript and CSS in a more hierarchical, group-defined way with LibGuides allowed us to tackle technical debt.

Which is to say that it is worth thinking about groups and permissions in LibGuides, as they can be helpful in the long run.
