Getting Started

Page Status

1. Unpublished: Other ONW LibGuide authors can see what you've done, but no one else. You're free to try different approaches and learn as you go without worrying that what you've done is out there for everyone to see.

2. Private: Still not listed in the public LibGuides, but can be viewed by anyone to whom you give the URL: other librarians, faculty, etc.

3. Public:  Guide will automatically be listed in our list of LibGuides that people can see when they look at our site.
