Now we get to the substance of LibGuides: the content you add to a guide.
LibGuides is designed to make content creation the key element - it handles layout, sizing, and display of the information for you, so you don't have to worry about how wide a column will be or whether things will line up properly.
LibGuides does this by presenting a "framework" into which you put your content items.
A Guide is designed as a multi-column page, which is the framework for the guide. You can adjust the column widths (even eliminating columns altogether).
When editing a guide, you'll see links in each available column that say Add New Box. LibGuides uses the term Box to refer to one of many kinds of containers that you can edit - there are dozens of box types, from regular text boxes (like this one) to boxes that let you connect to podcasts or link you to RSS feeds.
In other words, Boxes are what you use to put content into a guide.
1. Clicking the Add New Box link.
2. When you click the link, you'll be asked what kind of box you'd like. You have several options here.
3. After you've selected your options, give the box a title - this is required - and select a position for it (position for new boxes always defaults to the bottom of the column, but you can change that).
4. Finally, click Create Box.
