Guides for Classes

Yes, we can make a Guide, or LibGuide, for your class!

LibGuides can be created to include information related to library resources useful to a particular:

  • Program
  • Class Assignment
  • Course
  • Subject

If you're interested in working with the library to create a LibGuide please contact us. We will be happy to consult with you on the information you'd like to present as well as the related resources we have.

What are LibGuides?

A LibGuide is a helpful online aid that students can use to research a certain topic.

These guides usually contain listings of recommended resources for finding information such as books, eBooks, databases, or recommended websites.

LibGuides can be created for a specific subject are, subtopic are, a specific class, ore even a specific class assignment. 

LibGuides can also be used to gain fluency in using a certain research tool or technique.

Examples of Best Practices from Other Libraries

LibGuide participants belong to a cooperative community that has agreed to share the fruit of their labors. We can borrow content and ideas from our peers and they can do the same. If you find a LibGuide that you like somewhere else, we can quickly and easily create the equivalent.
