Library Guides

Librarians use a program called LibGuides to create tailored guides that provide information and links to subject or class specific resources for students and faculty. Both subject-specific and course-specific library guides can be found on the Library’s LibGuides page.

For students, these guides provide:

  • Background information on a specific subject area

  • Links to subject-specific databases to which the library subscribes

  • Easy access to print resources and databases for different subjects

  • Class-specific resources for particular courses and research projects

  • Resources to help you with formulating ideas and writing a paper

  • Information on how to properly use and cite your research

  • Another way to contact the library and obtain research help when and where you need it

For faculty, these guides provide:

  • A customized web-based resource for your classes

  • An online space available to your students 24/7 for research instruction

  • The ability to incorporate multi-media resources such as videos and RSS feeds

  • A way to incorporate a Librarian and/or library resources into your courses

Librarians are available to create course-specific and subject-specific guides to assist your students in meeting your course goals and their research needs. If you are a faculty member who would like to collaborate with a librarian to create a LibGuide for your course, please contact the Reference Librarians at 508.565.1203,, or contact your Subject Liaison.
