Assigning tags to a guide

Getting there

To change a guide's tags, you must first edit your guide. There are two ways to do this:

  1. Go to Content > Guides and click on the name or Edit () icon for the guide.
  2. Or, from the LibGuides dashboard, use the Edit Existing Guide option in the LibGuides Shortcuts box.

Adding tags to a guide

Tags provide a way to organize guides by keywords. Primarily used to weight and filter search results, you can also create widgets that allow users to view guides assigned to your tags.

  1. Click on the pencil () icon next to the Tags field at the top of the guide.
  2. In the window that appears, start typing the name of your tag in the text field.
    • If that tag already exists in the system, select it from the dropdown list of results.
    • Otherwise, you can add your new tag by simply pressing enter when you finish typing.
  3. ​Click the Save button.
