LibGuides 2 Implementation Group: 4/15/2015

Documentation, meeting minutes, and other information from the LibGuides 2 Implementation Group


  • 5 min:  LibGuide 2 Road Show update
  • 50 min:  Look-and-feel



  • Keep the look-and-feel of LibGuides 2 as close to LibGuides 1 as possible
  • Look into producing documentation regarding the use of <h3> and <h4> tags


Keep the LibGuides 2 look as close to LibGuides 1 as possible.  The current design is pretty recent.  Changes to the look-and-feel could change design workshops.  We should do something conservative and make people aware of how they can snazz their guides up (note:  LibGuide authors have a very limited ability to change the look-and-feel of their guides).  We like the idea of having other "Yale" colors to use in the tabs.

If we start from a vanilla installation of LibGuides, we should:

  • Keep the full YUL header
  • Keep the blue background/white text for the box headings
  • Keep the H1 (page title) font and color
  • Suppress breadcrumbs
  • Retain YUL <h3> and <h4> styles
  • Use Verdana
