Libguides are web pages generated by library staff and consist of library resources designed to enrich course content; e-reserve readings, PDFs of book chapters, articles, embedded video demonstrations, links to streaming film content, slide shows, images and interactive discussion, quizzes and surveys. Faculty are invited to work with library staff to specify what would best enhance their students' learning, and the library will work to locate and embed or link the resources. You can focus library content for your class in one place.
Once you are provided with the link for your libguide, you should send it to your students. You can go over the content of the guide in class.
When students have the URL for your libguide, you can create any relationship with it that best enhances your class. You can let them experiment on their own, or library staff can set up an e-reserve page containing readings that sync with each week of the semester. Ideally, a libguide serves to increase student engagement by offering contextual enhancements to the class as well as techniques for independent research.
