Many courses make use of the library’s Guides (aka course guides, research guides, or LibGuides) which are created by the librarians to direct students to pertinent and valuable academic sources for their assignments and projects. In some respects, these guides serve as “one stop shopping” for students’ research needs. The guides are popular–over 74,000 views this academic year!
