What in the World Are LibGuides?

LibGuides are easy to use customized electronic subject guides that Shaw University librarians create to help students and faculty with their research needs. This site is a LibGuide!  LibGuides are accessible from anywhere at anytime. Each guide is customized to a particular subject so that users will know which resources will likely yield the best results.

LibGuides usually contain listings of recommended resources for finding information such as books, eBooks, databases and relevant websites.

LibGuides can be created for a specific subject area, subtopic area, a specific class, or even a specific class assignment.
