LibGuides Have a New Look!

LSU-HSC New Orleans LibGuides have been changed from a top “tab” navigation style to a side navigation style. This was done to match the rest of the LSU-HSC New Orleans websites, as those are all also side navigation. In addition to the navigation change, profile boxes of the guide’s owners are now available, this was done to make contacting the person who owns a certain LibGuide easier, and would be the person to contact if there is a question about a LibGuide and its content.
