Instructors can request a course specific Research Guide by setting up a consultation with their subject librarian. 

About Library Research Guides

Librarians are able to create study and instructional aids called Research Guides.  These resources provide access to librarian contacts and appointments, databases and e-journals, listing of books, and common finding aids.

Example of the Library Research Guide (Chemistry Guide -

Users can view a listing of all published Research Guides, or view a listing of Research Guides by subject.

There are two types of Research Guides

  • Course Guides, created to emphasize a specific class with a research component in it.
  • Subject Guides: Focused on information about a Discipline or Major

Instructors interested in adding a course specific Research Guide can contact their subject librarian to set up a consultation. Your Librarian will be able to determine if an existing Subject Guide will be sufficient or if a new guide should be created.
