Library Course Guides – A Versatile Tool for Every Course

The library offers many services that help connect students to library resources and academic support—Course Guides are one of them. Course Guides complement the library’s in-person services such as in-class instruction, workshops, drop-in help, and one-on-one consultations. They provide a starting point while working through course material, research, and assignments.  

Course Guides can be accessed anywhere, anytime—allowing students to find the help they need 24/7. Popular help topics include: Citing in APA Style, Finding Journal Articles, Presentation Skills, Learning from Textbooks, and Time Management. All guides are easily customizable and most undergraduate courses already have one tailored to fit their course content.  

All Course Guides can be easily embedded into CourseLink by adding them to a module or by including them as a resource for an assignment. Or, when adding or cloning a Course Reserves list in Ares, you can opt to have the relevant course guide included. If one does not exist for your course, request a guide by filling out the Course Guide Form
