Changing a guide's subject categories

Subjects provide a way to organize guides by topic, discipline, or subject area. On the default LibGuides homepage, these will appear grouped under the "By Subject" tab.

  1. Click on the pencil () icon next to the Subjects field at the top of the guide.
  2. In the window that appears, select the subject categories you want to apply from the dropdown.
    • You can assign a guide to as many subjects as you'd like.
    • However, you can only choose from the listed subjects. Only Admin users are able create new subject categories.
  3. ​Click the Save button.
