Using LibGuides CMS to Create a Hospital Library Website

This presentation will describe the use of the Springshare product LibGuides CMS to create a hospital library website. In the spring of 2017 our Web Services department began the final stages of migrating institutional webpages, including the library website, to a new web content management system (CMS). When the new web CMS template failed to meet the needs of the library, we were given special permission by Web Services to use our existing LibGuides CMS instance to create the library website. Within a six-week timeframe a new library homepage and secondary pages were created within LibGuides. Familiarity with the LibGuides system, LibGuides’ inherent ease-of-use, and customer support were definite advantages throughout the project.
