What's a course page?
If your library subscribes to the E-Reserves module for LibGuides, you can easily add an e-reserves course page to your guide. The page will appear just like a regular page in your guide's tabbed or side-navigation menu. But, when a user clicks on it, they'll see the e-reserve course and its items instead of a page with the usual boxes and assets. This can be a great addition if you're creating supplementary guides for specific courses, as it allows students to see all of the available course items without having to leave your guide.
Note: when a course page has been added to a guide, the guide will be listed in the Related Guides section of the course's public page.
Adding a new page
- While editing your guide, click on the gray Add New Page () tab.
- If you have a tabbed navigation guide, this will be the very last tab.
- If you have a side-navigation guide, this will be the tab at the bottom of the menu.
- Under the Create New Page tab, select "E-Reserves" from the the Page Type dropdown.
- From the Course dropdown, select the course you would like to display. Only courses assigned to visible terms can be selected.
- In the Page Name field, enter a title for your page. This is what displays in your guide's navigation menu and page heading.
<i>(as used in Font Awesome icons). For best results, however, we recommend using CSS code to style page titles.
- You can give your page an optional Description.
- For the Position, select whether you want to add the page as a top-level page, or a sub-level page.
- A top-level page appears as a tab or side-navigation menu item.
- A sub-page is nested underneath a top-level page and will appear in a dropdown menu when hovering over that top-level page's tab.
- If you would like to hide this page from public view until its ready, select the Draft Mode checkbox.
- While enabled, you can only view the page while editing the guide. It will not be visible on the public guide, or while previewing the guide.
- Note: if your system has the Publishing Workflow (CMS-only) enabled, only a designated reviewer can take a hidden page out of draft mode.
- Click the Save button.
