Based on LibGuides usability studies, patrons do not want or need every resource that's available. If they want every database, they can look at the A-Z List. If they want more books, they can go to the catalog.
In our guides, they want our knowledge and expertise to highlight the best resources. They're looking for a curated list with information about why a particular resource will be useful to them.
As the abstract expressionist painter Hans Hofmann said:
“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.”
