  9. LibGuides introduction LibGuides is a platform for developing subject and

  10. New features in LibGuides 2 New responsive design automatically creates

    mobile- optimized guides. New professional look-and-feel for web visitors. Improved guide authoring interface.
  11. Mobile-ready, out of the box Responsive design automatically creates mobile-optimized
