How To Make Good Research Guides

Embed Buttons

If you feel comfortable inserting HTML, Buttons can be wonderful tool for drawing user attention to key resources or content. To use the button below, copy the code and insert it as html in the LibGuides Rich Text Editor. Be sure to switch on the source code editor first! The button for this is located on the top-right of the rich text editor.

Replace the # with your hyperlink. Replace "Go Somewhere" with your resource. It's good user experience to name your buttons clearly. Don't name your button "more" or "learn more here." Sending people to Special Collections? Name the button "Go to Special Collections."

Go Somewhere

<a class="btn btn-spring" href="#">Go Somewhere</a>

Go Somewhere else

<a class="pratt-btn" href="#">Go Somewhere else</a>

Go Somewhere else (muted)

<a class="special-btn" href="#">Go Somewhere else</a>

Use Videos

We can embed video content using LibGuide's Media/Widget Asset Tool.

Did you know that you can embed videos from Kanopy, Docuseek, and Alexander Street Press?  Simply find the movie of your choice, click Share or Embed, and copy the code.
