Course (Research) Guides

 

We offer Subject Guides for each discipline in order for students to effectively conduct research. Within these Subject Guides there are Course Guides that pertain to the course assignment. Course Guides provide a layout of library resources that will be helpful to the student. If you want your course guide to contain self-paced library tutorials for your students to submit for participation credit, select that option on the form. 

 This is suitable to submit when a live workshop will not take place with a librarian but when an instructor wants library support for their students.
