notice that you can assign a guide Type. In this way, your guides will display in different categories in your landing page:


Now, go to the little landscape icon at the top of the page:

you now have a choice of your traditional top-tabbed guides, or use side of the page navigation like they've done at Middlebury.

Also, you can insert Prev / Next Links like the ones at the bottom of this guide!

....and, check out all the colors and fonts you can change in your tab & box options:



Are there new boxes in version 2?

Yes! Look at the boxes below. You can create a tabbed box or a gallery box. Also, some of the types of boxes that you could create in version 1, are a little easier to do with version 2!

A tabbed Box

Present different information, images, videos, etc. in each Tab (check out the Tips and Tricks section to learn how to add images to your Libguides and create a Gallery box).

Like in this tabbed box displaying images of New York.

The Woolworth Building.

Or, Create a Gallery box where the images rotate, like the box below!
