Did you know that the Heartland Library has subject and class specific Research Guides? We can create one for your subject area or class!
Subject Research Guides
Subject Guides are focused on a single or several related areas of knowledge. Take a look at a few of our subject Research Guides such as Nursing or the Humanities to get an idea of the content we can include.
Class Research Guides
Class Research Guides are created for individual classes such as ENGL 101 or PSY 209. Typically these guides contain information that is referenced in our library instruction session or a recorded video. Each guide is created with customized information for the class requested and students have access to the guide throughout the semester.
Class Research Guide Maintenance
LibGuides are unpublished and inaccessible during times in which the course is not in session. Faculty members will need to contact the library in order to have a previously active LibGuide published again. This policy is in place to update links, check relevancy of materials and conduct routine maintenance.
