Abstract: Libraries purchase LibGuides software in the effort to provide all users with easy access to engaging library content. Active administration of the software is a vital component in realizing this goal. In the summer of 2014, Miami University Libraries migrated from LGv1 to LGv2. A small group had traditionally overseen the administrative aspects of the LibGuides software that included managing accounts and troubleshooting. The migration to LGv2 created a unique opportunity for the group to re-evaluate their administration and take a more active role in implementing a broader vision of the use of LibGuides in order to meet the needs of faculty, staff, and students.
