Information for LibAnswers Editors

General rules when creating and editing:

  • FAQ should have only one Topic (do not create new Topics without Admin permission) 
  • Keywords usage is unlimited (go wild!)
  • Do not switch ownership to yourself if you are just editing. The creator of the FAQ will be lost as well as its context. Only switch ownership if the creator is no longer with the college and add a note.
