Does your division have a group identity? Look below.
At the left is an example of a "people entry" or "librarian" box (formerly, a profile box).
Below that is a "location entry" or "library" box.
These boxes contain descriptive information about who you are, what you do, and how to contact you. NOTE: These boxes will appear BLANK in your "edit" view. To preview how they look to users, click on the eye icon at top right.
Collaborating on a guide with someone? Want to recommend a subject expert for a specific class?
You can add a second (or third, etc.) librarian (or group) to your guide!
To add these boxes, you first have to edit your guide's metadata! When you're in a guide, click on the gear icon at the top left, and select "Guide Metadata."
Add your information to this metadata (see image below):
Now, add the appropriate library information to this metadata (see image below):
Now you're ready to add the "Librarian" and "Library" Boxes to your page!

Another option is to use the title to tell the user why you're there, by titling it "Need Help?" or "Get Help!" However, if you use this approach, consider how you can tell the reader your position/specialty (add to your display name, etc.).
Your default information (name, photo, office location, email, and phone number) should already be entered into CQ/AEM (the software for the main library website). If you want any changes made (such as adding social media accounts), just email the helpdesk <email@example.com>. Any changes you make will automatically update not only in LibGuides, but across the entire library website, wherever this profile is used.
Need some help? Just want a photo added? Just email the helpdesk <firstname.lastname@example.org> with the photo attached, or let them know to use your Columbia/marketing photo from Allison Morrow.
Your location's default information (name, photo, location, map link, hours) is already entered into CQ/AEM. If you want any changes made, a designated person in your division will be able to do so, or you may ask LDPD for updates <email@example.com>. Any changes you make will automatically update not only in LibGuides, but across the entire library website, wherever this location information is used.
