Jackson Library offers a way to organize and showcase library and online resources relevant to your students for research and study.
LibGuides is an information sharing system designed to help students locate and quickly access topical resources. The platform allows for easy navigation of core resources for a particular field, class, or assignment.
The platform effectively invites collaboration between librarians and instructors to promote information literacy and research.
Organize core and relevant resources for your class on one 24-hour webpage, and simply give your students the custom url.
Appeal to all learning modalities using library video and podcasts, paired with books, articles and web sources. Feature all in one place.
Put students in touch with databases and information you suggest, along with a librarian who can help guide them.
