LibGuide Design Basics: LibGuide Community

This guide provides tips and resources to FSCJ librarians create LibGuides.

Sharing FSCJ Content


By default, all FSCJ LibGuides should be licensed under CC BY 4.0. There is a reusable box that you can add to the lower left column or to the bottom of your guides.

If you would like to be included personally in the attribution of something significant that you have created, you will need to modify the reusable content license box to include your name and/or title. Please still make sure to include "Florida State College at Jacksonville Libraries" so that institutional credit is still given. Inserting librarian names adds a layer of complication, both for others using our guide and on our end for guide maintenance, so we ask that you do this for sparingly

Using Content for the LibGuides Community

When you copy guide content from another institution within the LibGuides community:

Unless clearly marked with a license, ask for permission first.

Attribute the borrowed content.  

  • Place the attribution in a bottom box of your LibGuide page. Attribution should be present on each page that includes borrowed content; so, if the whole guide was borrowed, an attribution box should be placed in the lower left of each page on the guide.
  • Include the following elements in your attribution, unless otherwise specified by the creator:
    • Creator - Hyperlinked back to main library or institutional page. Only list the institution or library name, unless the individual librarian asks to recieved credit as well.
    • Name of Original LibGuide - Hyperlinked back to the original page.
