Information about LibGuides authors appears in a Profile Box and in an extended Profile Page.
Edit your Profile Box or Page by logging into LibApps ior chaging to LibApps from LibGuides then choose My Profile in the top orange menu bar.
By default your Profile Box appears on your main profile page. It includes your title, an image, contact information, a list of the subject areas you cover, and other information.
Best practice: Your profile box should appear on the main page of any Research Guide you author.
Edit your Profile Box in the main LibApps dashboard by clicking My Profile on the orange menu bar.
