    Attribution is important for both academia and for most open licenses in OER. At present, to ensure proper credit is given and that any attribution requirements for licensing is satisfied, the LibreTexts libraries are equipped for adding an author bar to each page. This is added via the meta-tags "Author" option in the collapsible "Page Settings" option of each page (Figure \(\PageIndex{1}\)). For example, the author bar for "Delmar Larsen" is indicated on this page (see above). New author bars can be created by the LibreTexts development team as needed/requested.

    You should also indicate the author of the page before it was remixed.

    The second is to add text at the end of the page
