Reusing the A-Z Community description for a database (CMS only)

Once you've linked a database to the A- Community (available with LibGuides CMS), you can copy the current database description from the Community record to your local database at any time.

  1. Go to Content > A-Z Database List.
  2. Under the Databases tab, click on the linked database's Name to view its details.
    1. Linked databases will display an active Community ( ) icon in the Actions column.
    2. If a database is not linked to the Community, that icon will be grayed out.
  3. If the linked database has a Community description, you'll see the  Copy Community Database Description button display below the Description field. Click the button to continue.
  4. The Reuse Community A-Z Description window will show you a comparison between your current, local description and the Community description.
    1. To replace your local description with the Community description, click the Save button. This will permanently replace your current description and cannot be undone.
    2. Otherwise, click Close to retain your current local description.
