FAQs

  What is a LibGuide?
   Answer:

Springshare’s LibGuides are a content management and information sharing system designed specifically for libraries. LibGuides are user-friendly, efficient electronic resources that invite collaboration between librarians and instructors to meet the research needs of a particular department, class, or assignment.

A Guide can be thought of as a mini-website. LibGuides are sets of web pages for research assistance, subject guides, and useful resources compiled by us, your friendly librarians!  You may find LibGuides for specific courses or assignments.  Or you will find LibGuides on general topics. While still other LibGuides explain about the library.
