LibApps Admins can now upload security certificates for LibGuides, LibAnswers, and LibCal custom domains!
All products that support custom domains now also support security certificates for those domains.
Why Are We Doing This...And Why Now?
What's a Security Certificate and Why Do I Need One?
I Have a Springshare Domain (.edu, .org, etc.)
I Have a libguides.com, libcal.com, libanswers.com Domain
I'm Still on Version 1 of LibGuides, LibCal, LibAnswers
Change your LibGuides, LibAnswers, or LibCal custom domain using our self-service tool!
Current LibGuides Domain URL
What You Want to Change It To
To manage the domain names of your LibApps sites, go to Admin > Domains and Certificates.
Yes, contact Springshare Support.
LibInsight, LibStaffer, and LibWizard do not support custom domain names.
They can only end in .libinsight, .libstaffer, and .libwizard, respectively.
If students can't remember their course name, number, or their professor, they can still find their E-Reserve items by searching for the title from the EReserves landing page.
We're adding some really handy features to your LibGuides A-Z List:
We're adding a bunch of functionality to the Books from the Catalog Asset type:
If you have LibAuth connected to your local authentication layer (SAML, Shibboleth, CAS, SIP2, Active Directory, LDAP, etc.), when a patron signs into your LibGuides, it will auto-create a patron-level account for them. This means, they'll be able to quickly and easily comment on your blog posts, discussion boards, etc. without you having to make a patron-level account one-by-one.
Easily upload and send images with your Twitter and Facebook posts and receive images on incoming posts as well.
A complete redesign of the LibChat operator screen that will enable you to juggle multiple chats at once and include stronger operator-to-operator features for more internal use.
