Review and update your library's policy page before the start of each new AskAway term to make sure information is correct and URLs are working as expected. Your policy page is hosted on your own library website, so you or a colleague can easily change the information as needed. 

Policy pages use the template below:

  • Please do not delete any lines.
  • If a category does not apply at your institution, leave it blank.
  • Additional lines and categories are acceptable. Please add any information you think would be useful at-a-glance for AskAwayers.

If you need to update the URL for the policy page, see the FAQ Update your library's policy page URL.
