No wrong info

As the (relatively new) admin of most of our library’s web content, my goal is to have no wrong info in our public-facing content. This seems pretty basic, but we’re actually not there yet. Part of the problem is that the library does not yet have control of some essential pages (the library homepage is currently beyond our reach), but part of the problem is also an abundance of infrequently maintained content.

There are a couple of ways to deal with this. One obvious one is to delete the superfluous stuff. If it’s not online, it can’t be wrong! Other stuff shouldn’t be deleted, but should be consolidated and maintained in one canonical location. LibGuides helps with this; it is easy to reuse content between guides, while maintaining control of that content in one spot.

Fixing incorrect info feels like a game of whack-a-mole right now, but I’m hoping it gets better as we implement best practices.
