Create brilliant, responsive Guides & Tutorials with easy multi-media support.

Unlike more traditional research guides, Stacks provides you with simple but powerful organizational tools that allow you to manage the content within your Research Guides with ease. Stacks organizes Research Guides into collapsible Tabs and Blocks.

  • Blocks act like the individual pages of your Research Guide, while you can think of Tabs as the folders that contain those pages

  • With a Research Guide’s content organized into neat Blocks and Tabs, users can easily access specific sections of large, detailed Research Guides
