Cite the same issues with Gallery Boxes as in the SpringShare documentation, e.g. motor skills, reading skills, etc.
Provide alternatives for showing images.
Provide the suggestion of hover links.
Push Friendly URLs into the styleguide, not best practices
Recommend a LibGuide design workshop to be held twice a year

Upload report of what won't work to LibGuides 2 guide
The Gallery Box: Should we restrict its usage? No, just provide caveats and reasons why it might not be a good idea to use it. Cite the reasons listed in the SpringShare documentation. Provide alternatives for showing images.
Hover links: Push it out as a best practice but don't tell people they have to do it. Also mention how long a list can be and when to consider breaking it into different boxes or box tabs.
Push the Friendly URLs discussion into the styleguide. Keep the best practice guide short. The styleguide can be longer.
We should have a design workshop for LibGuides a few times a year. Have an open door session where people can come in and bring questions about their guides. Present best practices.
We should talk about boxes that we'd like to make available to LibGuide authors. Someone needs to keep these boxes up-to-date. Some boxes that might be useful:
How to find a book
Events: Citation workshops
Chicago manual of style/MLA links
VPN/accessing resources from off-campus
Get it @ Yale
Ask a Librarian
Video support for screencast snippets (what size to use)
