Library Guides

Ever try to figure out which library resource you should use for your research?  It  can be challenging as the library provides access to a wide array of databases, e-journals, e-books, online reference tools, primary sources, government documents, newspapers and data sets.  

For this reason the Library has created a number of subject related Libguides.  They highlight which resources are important for research in different disciplines.  They also provide students with additonal help consisting of:

  • Libguides teaching students how to create an Annotated Bibliography, Cite References, etc.
  • Embedded videos showing students how to Search Databases, Use Refworks,  Learn about important Information Literacy concepts (e.g. what is Peer Review)

You can help your students to find these subject guides by doing two things: 

  • Put the hypertext link to them in paper handouts (Course Assignments, Syllabi, etc.)
  • Link to them from your course sites on Moodle or on a Web Page
