ORGANIZING YOUR PAGES
STRUCTURING YOUR GUIDE
FSCJ BRAND AND STYLE GUIDE
he side navigation option creates a left-side menu bar for each of your pages.
To use the Side Navigation option:
When naming your pages, be CONCISE, CLEAR, and CONSISTENT.
AVOID LIBRARY JARGON. Always consider your audience. For students, articles is a lot less ambiguous than databases or WMS. Remember that students are less likely to click on something that they don't understand, so even having an explanation on the page will not necessarily be enough.
MAKE SURE THE NAME OF THE PAGE SUMMARIZES ALL ITS CONTENT. If the page includes links to websites, books, and journals, make sure the link says Recommended Resources instead of just Websites.
ESTABLISH A CLEAR PURPOSE AND NAVIGATION FOR THE GUIDE. If you want students to progress through your guide in a certain way, consider renaming the homepage, adding prev/next buttons, or even adding Step 1, Step 2 helpers to the names of your guide pages.
Whenever possible, try to use one of our templates or reusable resources "mapped" boxes. This will allow us to easily update all boxes with one edit. We recommend that you add the Social Media box to the upper right of the page and the Ask Us! box to the lower left. You should remove the border for the Social Media box by clicking on the pencil to edit. See instructions below.
