Resource Pages

We will compile, arrange, and host resource webpages specifically for entire courses, and also for large-scale projects within courses. These webpages can contain helpful content such as hyperlinked web-based resources, subject bibliographies, and library pathfinders. Our subject pages for databases and other resources are now housed in our Research Guides, which can be expanded and edited by subject liaisons or interested faculty.
