The library website, including both the Reed Health Sciences Library and the Carnegie Vincent Library guides must follow certain rules in order to be compliant with Lincoln Memorial University's goals and mission. This requires each librarian to create and maintain web pages that reflect the look and feel of the entire library website.
Not following these rules could mean loss of LibGuides privileges.
If you have old links anywhere on your site, the site admin reserves the right to replace them. Check your links. :) If you are seeing the above message on your page, you have old/broken links on that page or in something on that page (i.e. .jpg, .png, .doc, .pdf). Updating the links helps us make sure our website is accessible and our patrons use materials and tools that are supported.
USE THESE REQUIRED STANDARDS
If you are not following the guidelines listed below on your subject guides and web pages, our patrons will not realize they are on the same website. Maintaining consistency helps foster trust in our users. PLEASE FOLLOW. These standards are not a suggestion, they are required.
Standards for the website:

HowTo@LMU: Create a LibGuide
Some people with disabilities use adaptive technology to access computers. Web accessibility standards provide guidance to allow adaptive technology to function with websites and to allow people with disabilities to have more equal access to information.
The Carnegie Vincent Library and Reed Health Sciences Library create guides with accessibility in mind. Our guides include simplified content and we work hard to make sure our guides are compliant with W3C accessibility guides with frequent testing utilizing web accessibility checking tools. If you are a person with a disability and you have trouble using our website or if you experience difficulty using any of our services, products, or facilities, please tell us about the problem.
