Screen Shot of LibGuide Example

Citation LibGuide

LibGuides are a platform where the library can gather and share resources. They allow us to collect resources on a particular topic or for a particular assignment for student use whether they are books, articles, ebooks, videos, websites, etc. Find more information on how to work with the library to create a LibGuide for a subject or assignment for your class. We also have a collection of LibGuides we make for the general population that get a lot of use.

The LibGuides that get the most use are:

Citation Guides (APA/MLA)

What Are Scholarly Journal Articles?

Web Resources Evaluation

Open Textbooks, OER & Other Open or Free Resources for Faculty

Library Hours

Distance Learning

Print from Your Own Device (PYOD)

Faculty Services

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

We have a few of extra things to mention this month.

The library reserves an extra classroom around the Cedar Rapids campus for additional groups space during finals week or the week before. Ask at the reference desk for more information.
