By the time you read this, the Chandramohan Library will be live online with a new resource: LibGuides. Designed to be a powerhouse of resources for a specific target audience, LibGuides can point students to the best resources to complete an assignment (see the guide for the Community Impact Project) or introduce a selection of great reading titles.

LibGuides allow us to create a custom, one-stop turbo-charge to help students easily identify resources and practices that will be useful in completing a specific assignment. Students might find a Youtube video on selecting keywords that return ├╝ber results, a section on note taking and avoiding plagiarism or hints for scouring the Internet without getting overwhelmed (or underwhelmed). We can point out helpful databases, books or high authority websites, too.

Look for the LibGuides link on the Prep Website, on the librarian’s page (left navigation sidebar). We’ll be adding new guides throughout the year, and looking to exploit the full potential of LibGuides. Stay tuned…..
