Subject Guides

What is a Subject Guide?

A Subject Guide is a specialized library website created specifically for your discipline. The subject guide will point out specific books, databases and websites for your discipline. 

Why would you want a Subject Guide? The library website can be a bit overwhelming. There are a lot of databases and resources and students don't always know where to begin. By starting out on a Subject Guide specific to their course, students can be led to the correct resources. 

Using LTI and the metadata of your Canvas course or discipline, we can automatically link these Subject Guides to your course. 

The Library is creating new Subject Guides all the time. If you're interested in having one created for your discipline, email us.
