Best Practices from Springshare


Research and Course Guides

The general intent of the UK Libraries' Research and Course Guides is to provide subject-oriented pathfinders/instructional guides and class-oriented pages to guide students through specific approaches to assignments.

URLs to all Databases will be maintained on the UK website. Database Link Addition Process for Research Guides details ways to use these resources on the Springshare site.

Once a new Research Guide is ready for public use, send the name of the Guide to so it can added to the main website for use in Database records and on the research guide listings on campus library pages.


Students and Temporary Employees

If a student or other temporary employee works on a Research Guide, a full-time librarian or staff member must oversee the creation of the page and approve its content before it goes live. The temporary employee should be given access as an editor or collaborator, NOT as a co-owner.  The full-time person's profile will be affiliated with the page, and that person will take over maintenance of the page when the temporary person has left.
