What is a profile box?
Each LibApps user account holder has their own profile box, which they can customize to display details like their name, profile image, and contact info. This not only lets our patrons know who created a page, but also how to get in touch with them. Pages can include multiple profile boxes, too, which might be useful -- albeit potentially crowded-looking -- if you are collaborating on a guide.
To carry out these activities, you need a LibApps user account with access to LibGuides. All Oakton Librarians have this kind of LibApps account.
