In the summer of 2014, Northwestern University Library began the process to migrate their library guides to LibGuides 2.0. With over 500 published guides and 88 active guide authors, upgrading to the new system required careful planning and collaboration with partners from across the library. In this presentation, we will discuss the steps we took to manage the migration process and the methods we used (and are still using) to learn about best practices working with LibGuides 2.0. Our process includes usability testing, system analytics, guide management, asset maintenance, and staff training and support throughout the migration. We will share lessons we’ve learned and our plans for future user testing and guide management.
