Guide Types

From the Create Guide screen, you will then set a guide type.

  • Use Subject Guide for subject guides.
  • Use Course Guide for course guides.
  • Use Staff Guide for internal use by YUL staff.
  • Use How-To Guide for guides that instruct patrons on how to use a tool or perform a task.
  • Use General Purpose for all other guides. (This is rarely used at Yale).


You do not need to assign a Group Assignment.
