A guide for library staff when creating new libguides

Adding/Removing Guide Editors/Owners

Sometimes you'd like to have a co-owner or editor on a guide so that multiple people have the ability to edit a guide.

Co-Owners can create and edit content on this guide, and their user profile and name will appear along with the guide owner on the guide pages, home page, search pages, etc.

Editors are allowed to create and edit content, but their name and profile are not displayed on the guide pages or within the guide description on other pages.

To ADD a co-owner or editor on a guide:

  1. Login to LibGuides and open the guide to which you want to change permissions.
  2. Click "Guide Settings" in the top orange header bar.
  3. From the drop-down list, click "Co-Owners, Editors & Collaborators."
  4. In the pop-up box that appears, decide if you want to give the person Co-Owner or Editor status.
  5. Click "Add."
  6. Click "Close" at the bottom of the box.

To REMOVE a co-owner or editor of a guide:
