Library Guides – A Unique Tool for Success at U of G

With the fall semester fast approaching, the number of resources available to faculty and students from the library is abundant. Course Guides stand out thanks to their ability to connect students to library resources, academic support and course content. They act as a starting point for students who are working through assignments, research and concepts, and can assist students with further reading. Course guides complement course instruction and other in-person services like workshops, drop-in help, and consultations.

The library offers over 1700 Course Guides, in a wide array of subjects. Students are able to search the library’s Course Guides by course code or by subject. Our guides are designed to help students succeed in courses as well as provide assistance in building other skills like time management, recording podcasts and preparing for essay exams.

Course Guides can be accessed in any place at anytime—allowing students better access than other traditional studying approaches. As well, course guides can be customized to meet the needs of students.

Course guides are easily integrated into CourseLink, either as a module or as a resource for an assignment. Faculty can also choose to opt into including relevant course guides when adding or cloning a Course Reserves list in Ares. If you can’t seem to find a course in our list? Simply request a guide by contacting us at library@uoguelph.ca.
