NC LIVE also offers a LibGuides template for LibGuides v2 that includes all resource links, descriptions and categories for your library to customize.  The LibGuide includes a master list of all NC LIVE resources, plus a separate page for each of the resource categories.

By using these LibGuides as a template for your own library's LibGuides, you can add or delete resources, create new category pages, modify database descriptions and, if necessary, add your local proxy prefix.
