Our library is also just getting ready to delve into LibGuides v2 so I'm also interested in hearing what others are doing!

Subject: [CODE4LIB] LibGuides v2 - Templates and Nav
I'm finally diving into our Libguides v2 migration and I'm wondering if anyone would be willing to share their experience/choices regarding templating. (Or even some code!)
I'm thinking left-nav is the way to go. Has anyone split the main content column into two smaller columns? Done that with a column-width-spanning box atop the main content area? Any other neato templates ideas?
We are in the process of building a "style guide" for all libguides authors to use. And also some sort of peer-review process to help enforce the style guide. I'm thinking we are going to want to restrict all authors to left-nav templates but perhaps the ideal solution would be to require left-nav of all but to have a variety of custom left-nav templates to choose from.
Any thoughts are much appreciated!
