The public system discussion board is a great way to interact with your patrons. Your public discussion board is available via your LibGuides homepage or by adding /discussions.php to your LibGuides domain name. For example: https://library.libguides.com/discussions.php.
Once on the board, any users that have logged into their account (LibGuides account holders and Patron accounts) can:
- Create new discussions from the Add New Discussion panel.
- Reply to existing posts.
- Search for posts by title in the Search Titles box.
- Filter the posts by tags.
- Manage their account or logout from the Manage Account and Logout links in the bottom right corner.
