Our Research Guides have a new look this semester. We’ve made some changes based on a DePaul University user study[PDF] and best practices that say, among other things, that online research guides should be more subject focused (fewer “general purpose” resources), and should not overwhelm users with too many choices.
The subject-specific content on the new Guides is (nearly) identical to the old Research Guides. We hope that it is presented in a way is clear and concise for you and your students. Please feel free to offer feedback on your guide(s). Your library liaison can create a course-specific guide if the subject guide does not meet your needs.
Did you know that your Blackboard course site has a link to your subject focused research guide? Clicking on “Library Research Help” will bring your students to a page with links to your subject’s Research Guide and your library liaison’s contact information.
