LibGuides @NCC: Getting Started: Help & More Info

Getting More Help

This guide provides NCC LibGuides authors with the basic information needed to create a new guide. It does not attempt to cover everything you can do with LibGuides or to answer every question you may have.

The sources on this page provide other means of getting help and ideas for your guides. They include both internal and external sources, and more will be added over time.

Don't forget some of the best sources: your NCC and SUNY LibGuides colleagues. You can always ask me for help but be sure to lean on and learn from one another as well.
