FACULTY LIBRARY GUIDE

What faculty need to know about our libraries that support teaching, research and student-centered success.

Using Library Research Guides in Canvas

WHAT IS A RESEARCH GUIDE?

Research Guides are web pages that contain information for students and faculty to help students better use library resources, conduct research, and perform other tasks to succeed in assignments. Research Guides are created, maintained and updated by librarians. Research Guides can be subject specific (English, Chemistry, Engineering), course specific (ENGL 2010; CHEM 1010) or general (About the Library, Faculty Library Guide, OER information).

WHY USE A RESEARCH GUIDE IN YOUR CLASS?

Research guides are a helpful tool for students and faculty that support the library research process. Research guides promote learning autonomy and life-long learning. Research guides can help improve students understanding of how to find, evaluate and ethically use information.

WHERE ARE THE RESEARCH GUIDES?
