You can provide access to personal copies, library-subscribed content/books, and openly accessible resources available to your class(es) through Course Reserves at Snell Library and/or online through Blackboard.

Research Subject Guides: access to databases and library expertise

  • Online Research Subject Guides are curated portals for academic subjects/topics that save time by connecting students with the top resources in a field and the library staff who can help. Students can book appointments online with librarians to consult in-depth about their research/assignments.

  • Online Course Guides are customized guides for resources specific to a course. Like Research Subject Guides, they provide access to the top resources but tailored to the course and any key assignments or projects being assigned. Contact your subject librarian to request a course guide.

Assignment/project design: helping students develop research skills

Well-designed, course-related assignments are an effective way to introduce students to the research process and help them develop sophisticated research skills. Subject specialists are available to add perspective and/or concrete suggestions for designing/revising assignments. Visit the page on planning effective library assignments.
