Course Guides can be customized based on one or a series of assignments, depending on your
requirements. After an initial consultation, your Subject Specialist Librarian may identify library
resources to aid in student research. Each resource included can have a description of the content,
and different sections can be created if multiple assignments are given. Course Guides give students
a focused starting point for their research. Because the Course Guides are web-based, they are
easily accessible and can be updated as needed. For an example of a customized Course Guide created
for Business Communication, please click
To find out more information, please contact your Subject Specialist Librarian/Research Liaison. A
list of subject areas, locations and contacts can be found
For more generalized information, Research Guides can be accessed via the
heading on the libraries homepage.
Research Guides have been created to cover over seventy topics such as Agricultural Science, Art
History, Business, Dance, Education, Medical and Health Sciences, Political Science, Psychology, and
Women's Studies (to name a few). If students need to do research, but a customized Course Guide is
not required, you can link directly to any of these Research Guides
