Did you know that our LibGuides have been viewed over 240,000 times just in the fall 2019 semester? Keeping our LibGuides free of errors and up to date is an important part of our services at Rutgers University Libraries. With the help of some awesome student workers, we’ve made great progress in recent months to reduce the number of broken links from more than 4,600 to fewer than 1,800. As we move into the spring semester, now is a good time for LibGuide authors to make sure that your content is current and accurate! Taking the time to do some “spring cleaning” will make ongoing maintenance easier.
Here are some suggestions to prepare your LibGuides for the start of the semester:
- Go over your list of guides. Determine which guides, if any, are no longer needed. You can also view guide statistics to see usage (page loads).
- Run a link checker report. This will provide you with a report of broken links in your LibGuides.
- Clean up your asset library. Run an assets report. Consider deleting assets that have zero mappings (not associated with any LibGuide).
